Minnesota Pollinator Resource Network

Pollinators such as bees, birds, bats and other insects serve a crucial role in the pollination of many flowering plants. Pollination happens when wind, water, or wildlife carry pollen from the anther (male part) to the stigma (female part) of flowers. Almost 90% of the world's flowering plant species rely on animal pollinators. Pollinators have been identified as an essential part of Minnesota’s economy and may be in peril.

The EQB is coordinating with state agencies, industries, and citizens committed to promoting healthy, diverse pollinator populations for enhancing Minnesota’s environment and economy. The EQB and partners can not accomplish this alone, whether you are a home gardener or land manager there are many ways you can learn about pollinators and help them flourish.
