Certifying your Property
“Pollinator-Friendly
Master Gardener Program
of Allegheny County

Pollinators need our help. Both native bees and domestic bee populations are declining, affected by habitat loss, disease and contact with pesticides.

Penn State Extension Master Gardeners are taking action to protect pollinators by planting pollinator friendly gardens and providing education for the gardening public. You can join this effort by providing food and habitat for native insects/animals.

Pollinators will, in turn, provide the pollination needed to protect our plant diversity and food sources. Certifying your property as “Pollinator Friendly” will help support a healthy ecosystem for our community and our future.

This presentation will cover all of the reasons and steps necessary to apply for this important certification.

Lunch will be provided.
