Leave the Leaves

September 19, 2022 Sandy McCarthy

Did you know that bees use dead leaves and other plant material for winter cover? Leave the leaves is a new slogan by the Bee Campus USA initiative (Xerces Society) to help pollinators survivor winter.  Help protect our pollinators by not raking your leaves this fall or consider leaving a pile of leaves for their winter survival. The Bee Campus USA  is helping the fight for the survival of bees threatened by habitat loss, pesticide use, diseases, and climate change.  Take part in the national Bubble Bee Watch by submitting your campus photos to the Bumble Bee Watch.
