In support of Callaway Gardens’ ongoing mission towards education, conservation, sustainability, and land stewardship, we are excited to take part in  Pollinator Week!

Join us for a weeklong celebration of our important pollinators — bees, butterflies, birds, bats, and beetles — and the plants that support them. We hope you leave inspired to do your small part to support a pollinator-friendly ecosystem!

Did you know? Pollinators are responsible for 1 out of 3 bites of food we take each day, and yet pollinators are at critical point in their own survival. Many reasons contribute to their recent decline. We know for certain, however, that more nectar and pollen sources provided by more flowering plants and trees will help improve their health and numbers. Increasing the number of pollinator-friendly gardens and landscapes will help revive the health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats and other pollinators across the country.

Here’s how you can help build on the million movement!

From individuals, to schools, community groups, and businesses – everyone can make a difference!
