Roads crisis-cross the state of Oregon, making roadsides an appealing focus for creating an interconnected network of pollinator habitat. But roadside habitat has to fit within the constraints faced by Departments of Transports.

Our guest this week is Robert Marshall, who is the Roadside Development and Landscape Architecture Program Lead for ODOT. He is also a member of ODOT’s Pollinator Task Force.
