Plant Pollinator Gardens

Protect Our Pollinators

Gardening can be a wonderful way to connect with other people, to beautify a landscape, and to make a big impact for wildlife. The monarch butterfly was once common all across the country but is now at risk of extinction. Pollinator-friendly habitats in backyards and balconies, and along sidewalks or even highways, can help bring this species back from the brink of extinction and support many other pollinator species. Join the Philadelphia Zoo and the Adventure Aquarium in strengthening a healthy habitat for people and wildlife in the Camden and Philadelphia area.
