There are endless resources online which provide links and information to help individuals, towns and states make their spaces more hospitable to bees, butterflies, bats etc.

The great state of Connecticut “passed by the General Assembly in 2016 authorized the DOT wildflower program to help pollinators like bees and butterflies that are often under severe stress because of loss of habitat, diseases and the widespread use of pesticides in Connecticut. A new DOT list released this month includes 51 new spots along state highways, on- and off-ramps and medians that have been designated as “conservation areas” where invasive plants will be removed and native flowers and grasses will be allowed to grow.”
