Resources to Help Pollinators

NRCS and our conservation partners provide technical and financial assistance to create and improve pollinator habitat.

Three-fourths of the worlds flowering plants depend on pollinators to reproduce. Most fruit, vegetable, seed crops and other plants that provide fiber, medicines and fuel are pollinated by animals. Some scientists estimate that one out of every three bites of food we eat exists because of animal pollinators like bees, butterflies and moths, birds and bats, and beetles and other insects.

NRCS provides technical and financial assistance for farmers and private forest owners to improve pollinator habitat on their property. The Environmental Quality incentives Program has targeted assistance for honey bee and other pollinator habitat.

Other organizations with resources to learn about and help pollinators include:
