Seed A Legacy Program - Bee and Butterfly Habitat Fund

The loss of pollinator populations throughout North America is occurring at an alarming rate.  With stats like 40% loss of honey bee hives annually, and 80% loss of monarch populations in the last 20 years, the need for action is more critical than any other time in our agricultural history. 

Midwest landowners who want to help honey bees and monarch butterflies have a unique opportunity through The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund’s SEED A LEGACY Pollinator Habitat Program. The updated program expanded in 2018 to include 11 states. Landowners and beekeepers work together to provide cost-effective, high-quality pollinator habitat to ensure honey bee and monarch butterfly populations thrive.

Applications for each state will be accepted online starting March 1st. The application deadline is March 31, 2018 for spring planting. A second application period will open later in 2018 for projects to be planted in the fall.

“The fastest, most impactful way to improve pollinator health and increase populations is to establish habitat that strategically delivers maximum pollinator nutrition,” Pete Berthelsen, Partnership Coordinator with The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund explains. “We bring innovation and new technology to habitat by delivering projects that are cost-effective, establish quickly, provide greater pollinator value, and better handle weed competition.”

Enrollment is open to public, private and corporate landowners in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin. These states were selected based on their critical role to address National Pollinator Partnership Action Plan goals.

Pollinator populations are experiencing critical population declines. Monarch butterfly populations have declined by 80% over the past 20 years, honey bee hive losses top 40% annually, and in 2017 the Rusty Patched Bumble Bee was listed as an endangered species. Landowners participating in The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund’s SEED A LEGACY Program can help reverse this trend.

“The Seed A Legacy program offers a unique opportunity to get high quality pollinator habitat on the landscape in a critical location of the country,” says Chip Taylor, Director of Monarch Watch. “Establishing pollinator habitat is one of the most impactful ways that people can benefit monarch butterflies and other important pollinator species."
