The Driftless Area Land Conservancy and Southern Driftless Grasslands have received $25,000 from the Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin to work with private landowners on pollinator habitat enhancement and creation in southwest Wisconsin. Monarchs, rusty patched bumble bees, and regal fritillary butterflies, are included in the assortment of twenty butterfly, bee, and moth pollinators designated as Species of Greatest Conservation Need that will benefit from this increased habitat.
Are you a private landowner with property located near York Prairie SNA, Blackhawk Lake Wildlife Area, Governor Dodge State Park, Nelson Dewey State Park, Yellowstone State Park and Yellowstone Wildlife Area? Are you aware of a remnant prairie or savanna on your land? Are you interested in improving the condition of an existing prairie planting for pollinators? Please contact Jenn Simons, the SDG Project Manager, for an application. You may be eligible for funding.

This donation comes from the Wisconsin Pollinator Protection Fund established by anonymous donors to support native pollinator conservation efforts in Wisconsin. We are excited for this opportunity to continue our important work conserving lands for pollinators in SW WI!
