Project Pollinate

Lexi Howard runs an informational booth on pollinators and native plants at Rust Library in Leesburg on March 10.

The rapidly shrinking number of pollinators such as bees and butterflies is an issue of particular importance to Leesburg’s Lexi Howard, inspiring her to create an environmental education and restoration initiative called Project Pollinate.

“Unfortunately, we have a huge problem with the pollinator population,” Howard, a senior at Heritage High School in Leesburg, told the Times-Mirror. “I wanted to make a local difference.”
