Do you want to help pollinators on your farm, managed forest, rangeland, golf-course or community garden? Are you looking for practical training on how to build, maintain and establish pollinator habitat? Are you already helping pollinators and looking for recognition for your efforts? The OSU Pollinator Steward Program is for you. The program consist of self-paced online training and an optional field days course coupled with options for volunteer activity, surveying for bees and/or creating new pollinator habitat. Completion of the requirements will qualify you for recognition as an Oregon Bee Project Pollinator Steward.
The program will roll out for Woodland Managers in the winter of 2020, with farm and urban landscape options rolling out in the fall of 2021. Let us know if your interested by completing the registration form (below).
The Pollinator Stewards Program is supported through a grant from the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) Agriculture and Food Research Initiative (AFRI) Pollinator Health Fund and Western SARE.
