Pollinator Habitat Installation Guides

These regional guidelines provide in-depth practical guidance on how to install and maintain nectar and pollen habitat for bees in the form of wildflower meadow plantings or linear rows of native flowering shrubs. Seed mixes and plant recommendations for each region are included in the appendix of each guide. NRCS field staff and conservationists, please contact your state biologists or plant materials specialists regarding the status of these guidelines in your state.
