Wild Pollinator Partners aim to connect people — teachers, researchers, community activists, and residents of our region — who want to help pollinators.

Through our web site and social media, we hope to provide information about our local pollinators and describe real projects that are aiming to conserve them. As we gather data, we’ll publicize “best practices” for helping various pollinators: building a bee box, adopting pollinator-friendly practices in your yard or park, best plants for pollinators, and “profiles” of good pollinators found locally.

Because we’re local, we’ll also be holding informal workshops, nature walks, and site visits to demonstration gardens. (See Upcoming activities)

We’ll be exchanging lots of information and, when possible, plants and seeds.

If you’re interested in helping pollinators – bees, wasps, flies, butterflies, and others — we hope you’ll join us here, on Facebook or Twitter (@WildPollinators), and in person.

If you already have a pollinator garden or habitat, please let us know so we can add it to our site map. If you have knowledge to share, something that works in your garden, a great article you’ve read, a video about helping pollinators, a good resource book, please contact us and we’ll share the information in our network.

Let’s see if we can work together to make a difference!
