Today on Your Call: What can we do to bring bees and birds back to our gardens?
On today’s Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about local biodiversity. We recently did a show about the disappearing bees, which are needed to pollinate crops. Pollinators keep our ecosystems vibrant and healthy. So what can we do in our backyards and neighborhoods to make sure they thrive? What can we learn from places like Boston where pollinators are returning? What are you doing to create pollinator-friendly spaces? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and You.
