In 2016, in the Piney Woods of east Texas, an idea began to germinate. An interest in butterfly gardening and passion for our natural environment served as fertile soil, and the concern for the plight of pollinators was the seed of inspiration. In 2017 that seed sprouted when Project PolliNation was organized as a pubic non-profit to help remediate the dangerous decline of the Monarch butterfly, native bee populations and thereby help promote the well-being of all pollinators.
With the help of volunteers and partnerships with other like-minded environmental organizations, we provide simple and solid solutions to the growing environmental issues facing these pollinators. Our goal is to help re-establish community native pollinator gardens and habitats, with special attention to the Monarch eastern migration flyway to and from the mountains in Mexico.
Using dependable, productive, and beautiful native host and nectar plants and responsible and sustainable gardening practices, Project PolliNation gardens draw bees, butterflies, moths, and many other important beneficial insects, providing vital habitat for reproduction and sustenance.
It is through these native gardens that we can help restore the delicate balance between man and nature, and create something beautiful to their mutual benefit.
In June of 2014, President Obama established the Pollinator Task Force which published the National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators in 2015. The Task Force recognized that “while our nation is a mosaic of land uses and ownerships, pollinating animals do not recognize human-drawn boundaries. They make use of food and habitat anywhere it is found, whether on a national park land, a roadside strip, the edge of an agricultural field, or a schoolyard garden. Therefore, no single organization, federal or private, can independently shoulder the burden of helping pollinators, and the Task Force has been charged with an ‘all hands on deck’ approach to promoting the health of honey bees and other pollinators.”
Project PolliNation not only took this to heart, but is taking it on as our contribution to help a very large environmental concern.
Project PolliNation is a non-profit incorporated in the state of Texas. We have 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status. Donations are used for pollinator plant propagation and purchase, as well as any material costs necessary for installing pollinator community gardens. All time and expenses related to administration, marketing, garden design, planting, and maintenance is provided by the board.
Project PolliNation seeks to conserve and cultivate pollinators through the creation of native plant gardens and to spread the joy and transformative power of gardening and the butterfly
