Volunteer for Project Wingspan to Help Bees and Monarchs

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

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.

If you are interested in learning how to identify and gather seeds for Project Wingspan, email WOK president Marcia Goodrich at [email protected] .

Project Wingspan is supported by grants from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation to the non-profit the Pollinator Partnership.
