The Annapolis Hall Pollinator Habitat Gardens, established in 2023, surround Annapolis Hall with the aim of supporting campus and local pollinator conservation initiatives, including Bee Campus USA, the Route 1 Pollinator Corridor initiative, and College Park Bee City USA partnerships. This garden was initiated by a request from Annapolis Hall staff and is the result of a collaborative effort between the UMD Arboretum & Botanical Gardens, and Resident Life staff, as well as student volunteers from groups such as Terps for Change, SGA, and others. The volunteers have contributed their time and efforts to activities such as planting, weeding, watering, and helping maintain the gardens.

Native plants, including milkweeds, goldenrods, asters, phlox, black-eyed Susans, and bee balms have been planted to provide essential food resources for pollinators. The Annapolis Hall Pollinator Habitat Gardens serve as a welcoming space that promotes awareness, education, and conservation, highlighting the significance of teamwork and community engagement in enhancing campus landscapes and supporting the environment.
