It was 2019 when Heather Bradley accidentally killed a frog with her lawnmower.
"It hit me that keeping a turf lawn was a total waste of time, space, and resources, not to mention a detriment to ecology and the environment," said Bradley.
The plight of the little frog energized her. Other turning points have energized others to pay attention to pollinators, so Bradley is not alone. Pollinator and wildlife protection is taking off at the town, regional, and national levels. Stories that follow represent their rapid growth.
