U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Northeast Region


Clare Maffei and Jackie Hannifan monitor newly seeded wildflower fields and share their findings from throughout the summer as interns with the Service.

As warmer weather arrives in the Northeast, flowers and trees are blooming and pollinating insects are emerging. What better time to continue our project installing a pollinator garden at one of Philly’s most iconic locations?

March in the Northeast is that time of the year when we really start to crave spring! We got an early start this weekend when we helped close out the Philadelphia Flower Show with a special presentation about monarch butterflies and how people can help pollinators throughout the year.
