Treasure Valley Pollinators Group Supports Declining Bee Population

Jan 7, 2021

 

Pollinators, like bees and butterflies, are on the decline in the Treasure Valley. But a new project this spring is designed to bring those insects, and some beautiful flowers, into hundreds of backyards.

The Treasure Valley pollinator project will put 64,000 plants into the hands of people who live in the region. And not just any plants: the 32 varieties are designed to attract and feed moths, birds and other pollinators. 

Joining Idaho Matters now are Jessica Harrold, the coordinator of the new program from the Ada Soil and Water Conservation District and Josie Erskine and District Manager and owner at Peaceful Belly Farm.
