Due to many factors, the pollinator populations in New York are on the decline. Be it habitat loss, habitat fragmentation, overuse of pesticides or any number of other reasons, this is something to be concerned about. By converting some of your mowed lawn to wildflowers, you will provide habitat and connectivity around the county to bolster pollinator populations. This can help increase fruit tree productivity, growth of both flower and vegetable gardens, and other wildflowers found in the area.
Our mission is to protect and improve the lakes, rivers, streams, soils and other natural resources of Warren County through locally-led conservation projects and programs.
