In an effort to restore pollinator habitat, the Tennessee Valley Chapter of Wild Ones has established the Chattanooga Area Pollinator Partnership in our area.
Our project is inspired by the Greater Atlanta Pollinator Partnership and we are working cooperatively with other area organizations to expand pollinator protection in our area.
We are volunteers, gardeners, teachers, conservationists and students concerned about increasing and improving pollinator habitat.
Visit the CHAPP website to learn how you can start a pollinator garden.
The easiest way to help conserve pollinators is to provide them with
a pesticide-free habitat that provides food, shelter and a place to reproduce.
For a pollinator garden to serve its purpose, it needs to provide two things:
1. Seasons-long sources of food and water for visiting pollinators.
2. Opportunities for reproduction in a pesticide-free environment.
Addressing the needs of pollinators to both forage and reproduce is at the heart of every successful pollinator garden.
Provide a food source – We offer lists of easy-to-grow and important pollinator plant species for your Southeastern pollinator garden, as well as a page with a long list of resources and suggested plant guides.
Provide areas for reproduction – This information will show you how to cultivate, enhance or add natural areas to your garden for pollinator reproduction.
