Pollinators need our help!  The site, located just off of First Street in Smithton Borough, has been planted with native nectar-rich wildflowers and other beneficial native plants.  These plants are critical to their life cycle and survival.  These habitats also benefit upland and grassland birds such as Savannah Sparrows, Bobwhite quail, Upland Sandpipers, Grasshopper Sparrows, and other birds whose habitats and numbers are in decline.
