This morning John Latimer asked DNR Bee Specialist Crystal Boyd"what is THE single easiest, most important thing that any of us could do to increase or help out our pollinators.  Crystal said "Plant local native wildflowers....if you provide it they will come!" 

She also told us about a great resourceBumble Bee Watch, where citizen scientists (that's you!) can post photos and get help with identification. 

Check out the MN DNR's resources for pollinators as well.
