Pollinator Garden - Many plant pollinators like bees, butterflies, dragonflies, and beetles are in steep decline because of habitat loss from development, climate change, and pesticides. This loss threatens our food supply and directly threatens many ecosystems. Planting a garden is one way you can make a difference. BETE employees embraced this challenge to grow and maintain a pollinator garden at BETE's USA Headquarters.
