The Woodlands Township Pollinatives Project
Due to habitat loss and use of pesticides, pollinator populations have declined drastically across the globe in recent years. Plants that depend on pollination are critical components of a healthy ecosystem and comprise a large percentage of global crop production.
The Pollinatives Project seeks to establish backyard pollinator gardens and pollinator habitat in public spaces by offering workshops, resources and information on plants and seeds. Working with residents, businesses, churches, and agencies to raise awareness and create more pollinator habitat across our community, the goal is for The Woodlands to become a National Wildlife Federation Monarch Champion City.
- Attend a class and share with your neighbors. Sign up for our blog or calendar updates for notification on upcoming programs.
- We can bring a presentation to your group. Our team of Environmental Education Specialists are on hand to explain the program and how to implement habitat space for your home or organization.
- Create habitat in your own yard, or with your church, organization, school or business with native pollinator plants. The Township can help by providing expertise as well as a limited supply of plants and seeds.
- Volunteers are needed for larger community planting projects. Help to weed, seed and spread habitat for all types of pollinators!
- Download the easy-to-use iNaturalist app on your phone and monitor your habitat for pollinator activity. Your findings will support the Pollinatives Project. They’re also an interesting way to learn more about nature!
