ROGERS, Ark. — A new pollinator garden in Rogers will provide a home for bumble bees, squash bees, honey bees and butterflies.
General Mills unveiled the new habitat with the help of the Xerces Society and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Located just outside the General Mills office, the garden will help keep those insects from going extinct.
“Even though they are little bees, the reality is we are interconnected,” Mary Zettle, director of sales at General Mills, said. “And without them, our food source would change as we know it today.”
Zettle says it’s their mission to treat the world with care and providing this habitat in the local community is one way they can help both people and animals in the area.
