Bumble bees are an essential part of our wildlands, farms, and urban areas, yet many species are suffering alarming population declines. It is critically important to protect these vital pollinators.
There are simple things you can do to protect or create high-quality bumble bee habitat. Typically, these efforts do not involve significant increases in cost or work, but do require increased awareness and attention to the needs of bumble bees.
This brochure offers an overview of information about how to enhance any landscape to meet the seasonal needs of bumble bees.
This information sheet has details of the plant species included in the California Monarch and Pollinator Habitat Kits, an overview of the habitat kit project, and guidance on how to request a kit.
Insectary cover cropping is the practice of growing single species or diverse mixes of broadleaf herbaceous plants and allowing them to bloom to provide pollen and nectar resources that support populations of native bees, honey bees, and the insects that attack crop pests.
The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) worked with the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation to develop this report, which synthesizes the scientific literature and existing best management practices for monarch butterflies along with input from a survey of monarch experts and a survey of EPRI members. Monarch experts were surveyed to identify the relative benefit of specific conservation actions for monarchs as well as to provide opinions on the opportunities for power companies to engage in monarch conservation.
