Manhattan, MT - Montana Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation (MAITCF) and Gallatin County Conservation District are pleased to announce the updated version of the Montana Pollinator Education Project. This project focuses on vital information regarding pollinator species and their crucial role in Montana’s conservation and agriculture sectors.
This project showcases species and families of pollinators that make Montana their home. Each species has its own unique biodiversity and role in pollination. Factors such as housing, plant relationships, and unique characteristics are highlighted for each species. Seed packets are included in each kit to assist in creating a habitat for pollinators.
Lesson plans for K-8 teachers are ready for teachers to implement. Several graphic images of pollinators are also available on the website for a deeper understanding of pollinator markings and anatomy. Montana wildflower graphics are also available for teachers to use in the classroom to make connections between pollinators and conservation.
Pollinator enthusiasts, along with gardeners, conservationists, and student groups will find this project very helpful when seeking information on the role pollinator’s play in our lives and the health of their pollinator habitat. Several publications are included for additional information on lending a hand for pollinator conservation.
The Montana Pollinator Education Project is a combined effort by Montana Agriculture in the Classroom Foundation, Gallatin County Conservation District, Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, Natural Resources Conservation Services, and Montana State University.
Cost: Pollinator education kits are free, postage and handling rates may apply.
