Pollinators are an important component to the health of our watersheds. They contribute to the diversity of our watershed and the existence of our plants. Pollinator gardens as recommended by the U.S. Forest Services and the United States Department of Agriculture as pollinators are known to help boost pollinator populations. That’s why Kimberly decided to plant a local pollinator garden. The garden was planted within the Pouder River Panch Natural Area (a city park) in Greeley, Colorado. It includes fourteen different species of flowers and plants to attract pollinators. This will in result cater to our declining pollinator population and provide them with a chance at steading their numbers so they can continue serving our watersheds and us!
