- Enjoy this opportunity to Serve on this special day as you also learn how to garden with plants native to the Maryland Coastal Plain to provide habitat for butterflies, bees, dragonflies, hummingbirds, and more. Discover what it means to be an Environmental Steward and how you can make a difference for wildlife. Native pollinator populations are collapsing due to habitat loss. The Pollinator Garden at Patuxent Research Refuge is a demonstration garden to show how every yard can become a refuge for pollinators and other wildlife. Come ‘bee’ part of the solution by helping us establish this important demonstration site. The morning will include a lecture on how to choose native plants for your yard that will support pollinators.
