Butterflies and moths are some of nature’s most fascinating creatures, but as our cities grow, their habitat shrinks. By sharing this information about these important pollinators, together we can preserve butterfly and moth populations. It is easy to encourage these creatures to visit our yards and gardens and in the process, provide joy and a benefit to the sustainability of the environment.

You don’t have to be an entomologist or a bug geek to appreciate butterflies and moths. This web site provides some of the basic information you will need to help turn your backyard into an oasis for butterflies and moths.

Build your own bee nesting box to attract solitary bees, important pollinators for any garden.
