    Xeriscaping is the practice of landscaping with minimal use of water. Can be used rocks and native vegetation such as cacti in xeriscaping projects.
  • Reflection Question
    Climate & Ecosystems Support Local Pollinators
    Why is it important to take care of pollinators? Do you have a favorite pollinator?

    Simona Fuchila's avatar
    Simona Fuchila 4/29/2022 11:59 PM
    My favourite pollinator are BEES.
    Pollinators provide pollination services for wild plants and many of our crop species, too – one in three bites of food is due to cross-pollination by pollinators. Pollination is important for maintaining genetic diversity in plants and ensuring adequate fruit and seed production for crops, wildflowers, shrubs, and trees. Our forests, prairies, meadows, and gardens would look much different without the help of our pollinators.
