09 Aug What information can you give me on NRCS native pollinator programs?
H.V.PennsylvaniaAnswer: Thank you for contacting ATTRA for information on Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) native pollinator programs.Please see the NRCS Technical Note, “Using Farm Bill Programs for Pollinator Conservation” (PDF/3.1MB).This guide lists several NRCS programs that provide assistance for establishing native pollinator habitats. The main site for pollinators is:http://www.plant-materials.nrcs.usda.gov/technical/pollinators.html. There is lots of great information on this site. I would also recommend that you contact your local NRCS office to gather further details about the programs and how to apply. Other helpful resources are ATTRA’s Alternative Pollinator publication and the Xerces Society.
