Welcome to The Backyard Naturalists, the show about anything and everything connected with nature.
Dr. Carrie de Jaco is an associate professor at Pfeiffer University. She did a project with her reconciliation ecology class at Pfeiffer University, putting in pollinator gardens. There's all kinds of types of places that you can incorporate this. The important thing is just getting started.
Any place you can put some flowers for pollinators, you're bound to get some. Pollinators are really good at sniffing out flowers. And it really just seems like if you plant it, they will come.
We start this episode by talking about creating wildlife habitats. That initial episode of Creating Wildlife Habitats is still in the top three listened episodes for us. These principles have overlapped with almost every episode we've had. It's a really good guiding network for us to keep in mind.
