The Million Pollinator Garden Challenge has launched!

On June 3, 2015 the National Pollinator Garden Network (NPGN), an unprecedented collaboration of national, regional, conservation, and gardening groups, launched the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge. This is a strategic effort to promote and protect the needs of pollinators in North America. In the fall of 2014, AmericanHort and seven other organizations were convened to propose public/private sector efforts to help restore critical pollinator populations in support of the U.S. Federal Government’s strategy to “Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators.” AmericanHort and the other organizations are the founding partner members of the NPGN.
