Description:
 New Jersey's pollinators and honey bees have been experiencing overwintering deaths as high as 35% in recent years. This decline affects not only the beekeepers and agriculture, but plants' lives and the ecology of South Jersey as a whole. With plant awareness and the right stewardship program this problem can be solved on a personal level. Come and joins us as we take you through all the seasons and what pollinators need as great nectar and pollen forage sources.
