We are working with local farmers to establish and conserve native pollinator habitat!
Changing how farmland is managed can have a broad and profound influence on populations of bees, butterflies, and a range of other animals. In 2017, the Oneida County Land & Water Conservation Department received a Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (S.A.R.E.) grant to help increase pollinator outreach and engage farmers (both small-scale and large-scale), educators, and students in establishing and conserving native pollinator habitat.
