Wetlands and Pollinators: How Water Quality Practices Can Benefit Pollinators
Join the conversation as we discuss how wetlands can support pollinators, how to select native plants for pollinators on wetlands, common pollinator groups, and to see examples of successful restoration projects that incorporated pollinator habitat.
Wetlands are vital--recognized for their importance in protecting water quality, enhancing agricultural production, strengthening community health, and providing wildlife habitat. This webinar highlights how wetland protection and restoration can also support pollinator and other beneficial insect conservation. We will discuss the habitat needs of pollinators, the critical role native plants play in wetland communities, and how to determine which plant species are appropriate for your region to enhance biodiversity and improve wildlife habitat. We will broadly review the use of Farm Bill programs to restore or preserve wetlands that can also create pollinator habitat and highlight successful, pollinator-friendly USDA projects on wetlands.
