Project Wingspan is a three-year, landscape-scale project designed to increase monarch and rusty patched bumble bee habitat. Locally, the Keweenaw Wild Ones are partnering with Project Wingspan to help gather seeds from native plants in the Ottawa National Forest. Those seeds will be used to increase the quality, quantity, and connectivity of pollinator habitat across the Midwest and Great Lakes Region. The ultimate goal: to support imperiled native pollinators and the vital habitat they depend on.
Project Wingspan is supported by grants from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to the non-profit the Pollinator Partnership.
