Thank you to everyone who contributed ideas for pollinator protection in Minnesota. Read the draft action framework incorporating many of your ideas here: DRAFT Minnesota Pollinator Action Framework.

Pollinators are essential for our food, lands and wildlife, economy, and way of life. But, many pollinator species are in decline. This is a difficult problem and will require action by Minnesotans across the state. We, the Interagency Pollinator Protection Team, are developing an action framework to restore pollinator health in Minnesota.

Pollinators are essential for our food, lands and wildlife, economy, and way of life. But, many pollinator species are in decline. This is a difficult problem and will require action by Minnesotans across the state. We, the Interagency Pollinator Protection Team, are developing an action framework to restore pollinator health in Minnesota.

The key questions:

  • How can we learn more about pollinator species and populations?
  • How can our lands better support pollinators?
  • How can we ensure pesticides are used judiciously and only when necessary?
  • How can we raise public awareness and spur action for pollinators?

What we did in Round 1:

  • Discussed ideas for action with subject-matter experts
  • Considered the ideas for action and feedback we received from the public through this platform and email. We included many of these actions in the draft pollinator action framework
  • Released a draft pollinator action framework on December 1, 2022. You can find the document here: DRAFT Minnesota Pollinator Action Framework
