The Pollinator Network is a communication network where community members, organizations, and community leaders can come together to share ideas, volunteer, and learn more from each other. The long-term goal of this program is to understand the current health of each environmental sector and then develop a collective vision with accountable metrics that we can use to guide the region in conservation efforts.

We will focus community member-driven committees that advocate for a learning, action, and movement network within the following environmental sectors:

  • Food Systems
  • Air & Water Quality Management
  • Canopy & Land Management
  • Green Buildings & Practices
  • Sustainable Fashion & Products
  • Travel & Transportation

And their impact on the other environmental sectors, resilience, equity & access, effects on public health, policy recommendations, waste reduction, energy use, and educational & organizational support.
