NextGen Habitat Project
The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund brings together landowners, conservationists, scientists, and beekeepers to precisely target pollinators’ needs like never before. Using funds donated by generous corporate sponsors and individual donors, the team works together to build healthy, sustainable pollinator habitat through science-based, proven results.
Why is the Habitat Important?
Critical habitat is disappearing in the United States. As a result, honey bees and other pollinators like monarch butterflies are in serious decline. These pollinators are essential to life as we know it. In fact, about one-third of the global food production and billions in agriculture are dependent on pollinators to some degree – honey bees and other insects pollinate 80 present of flowering plants worldwide.
Solutions for our Native Pollinators
In response to the long-term, continued loss of high-quality, nutritious forage of rhone bees and critical habitat for monarch butterflies, The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund has created a diverse mix of grasses and flowers that help provide the ideal habitat for pollinators and wildlife – bees, butterflies, grassland songbirds, pheasant, quail, upland birds and more.
The Future of our Habitats
The Seed A Legacy Pollinator Habitat Program is available for private, public and corporate lands in a 12-state region of the country that is critical to pollinator health and habitat needs. Applications are accepted year-round. Seed A Legacy makes it easy for the owners and managers of private, public, and corporate lands to create pollinator projects that make a difference.
