Pollinator Habitat Restoration: Planning and Contracting

In this second part of a two part series on pollinator habitat design and planning, learn what to consider in planning and contracting to help ensure the success of habitat plantings.

In this webinar, planners will learn how to plan and contract pollinator habitat plantings. Guidance will help planners improve the success of habitat restoration plantings with adequate site preparation, implementation, and periodic maintenance during the plant establishment period. We also will discuss how to assemble a suite of practices to make the process easier for landowners.
