|Mother Nature's Backyard provides pollinator and bird habitat.|
|Several species of native Buckwheats attract summer insects.|
And that’s why Mother Nature’s Backyard is currently participating in a study designed to answer some of those questions – at least for the bees. Jesus Cepeda, a Master’s Degree Candidate at Cal Poly Pomona, is conducting a study of bee pollinators in six native plant gardens in Los Angeles County. Most are home gardens; but one is Mother Nature’s Backyard.
