The pollinator plot, shown above, is sponsored by the Alamance County Soil and Water Conservation District. This acre of sunflowers, cowpeas and buckwheat drew a lot of attention from visitors and was very popular with area photographers during the late summer. The project is a part of a statewide conservation restoration initiative known as Butterfly Highway. The goal of the program is to restore native flowering plant networks in order to support pollinators.
