Will Legend inspires people, and organizations to create more pollinator habitats. Plant a pollinator garden, any size is great! From window and patio planters, to home gardens, to pathways and roadsides, to prairies and meadows, to rooftops of school, commercial buildings – all can help. The more flowering plants, and trees will help improve bee’s, butterfly’s and even wildlife animal’s health, and numbers.
