Once you have your plants in place consider adding some habitat enhancements. Adding a simple flat rock in your garden gives butterflies an area to warm their wings. Insects need water, too. If you use a birdbath make sure you add a rock or pebbles so the insects can easily wade down to the water without drowning.

Once your habitat is complete, send photos of your garden to Becky Griffin at firstname.lastname@example.org or post them to our UGA Community and School Gardens Facebook page. You will receive a special Pollinator Spaces Project certificate.
If you live in the Atlanta area you may want to map your garden at the Greater Atlanta Pollinator Partnership website. So many ways to promote pollinator gardens!
