Learn about the life cycles of bees and butterflies including where and when they nest, forage, seek shelter and food in our landscapes. Learn about pollination and which native plants are specifically pollinated by bees or butterflies. The top native plant species for different habitats will also be highlighted for both bees and butterflies.
