With the goal of quantifying habitat impacts in Michigan of managed, quality grasslands, Michigan Wildlife Cooperatives is partnering with the National Wildlife Federation to create a small-habitat designation program. They hope to collect information from habitat managers who are creating and enhancing grassland complexes on their properties, in order to showcase the impacts land managers are having in Michigan for pollinators. Landowners who complete the enrollment process and meet the criteria will be mailed a Pollinator Habitat Designation sticker. A series of 15 free workshops being held across the state in March, April, and May will provide an overview of the value grasslands provide on a landscape. They will also provide information on where to find seed and how to plant it, as well as what financial and technical resources are available to assist you in creating and managing grassland habitats, and they will also showcase organizations helping to improve habitats.
