Wildlife Preservation Canada’s At-risk Pollinator Program is excited to share with you a new poster.  ‘A Flower Patch for the Rusty-patched’ can help you select plants to include in your garden this year that are known to provide food for the Endangered rusty-patched bumble bee. This bee has one of the longest colony cycles of our native pollinators and needs your help to find food throughout the seasons.  This poster features beautiful flowers that will help the bee when it emerges in early spring right through to the fall while adding colour to your garden. The gorgeous illustrations were hand painted by Toronto-based artist Ann Sanderson specifically for Wildlife Preservation Canada.  The poster is available for free download.  If you would like copies of the poster to distribute to members of the public, please contact us.
