HABITAT CREATION & PRESERVATION

POLLINATOR HABITATS 

 

Here are some of our recent successes with helping to create and preserve pollinator habitats in Colorado.

  • Championed a state resolution designating I-76 as Colorado’s first pollinator highway (2017) and launched the pilot planting project in 2018. Our partnership with CDOT continues with new pollinator plantings along Hwy 119 (2021).

  • Co-created and co-host the annual Colorado Pollinator Summit (2015-2020) with Denver Botanic Gardens and The Butterfly Pavilion; and co-lead the Colorado Pollinator Network

  • Worked with the Department of Natural Resources to spearhead a new, comprehensive pollinator policy for state lands (2018)

  • Recruited 2,000+ individuals and businesses to take our pollinator-safe pledge to use pollinator-safe practices on their properties
