The Pollinator Gardens are a joint project between the Friends of the Tanger Arboretum and the Muhlenberg Botanical Society. Each native pollinator garden bed contains plants that attract birds, bees, and other pollinators, providing nutrients and respite for these important critters. The plants in the gardens include: scarlet beebalm, sweet smooth Oxeye, Foxglove, Blue Lobelia, Purple Cornflowers, Asters, Goldenrod, and many more. Pollinators are critical to the development and success of many local crops including tomatoes, melons, strawberries, and more. Pollinators are at risk from a variety of factors, including insecticides, habitat loss, and climate change. This garden is a great example of what you can do at home to help support local pollinators.
