The program’s objectives are to increase awareness about declining pollinator populations, educate the general public on the importance of pollinator habitat and establish quality pollinator habitat across the country. The program will provide tools for chapters and their partners to work with local community partners to create habitat projects that involve youth, school and community groups.
Program support includes training on how to plan, plant and manage a pollinator project from start to finish. Additionally, conservation/pollinator curriculum for classrooms, hands-on educational activities and monitoring activities for after the project is established are provided. Project benefits include quality pollinator foraging and nesting habitat, but also opportunities for youth to get outside and gain an appreciation for wildlife and conservation.
