NACD Awarded Grant to Further Pollinator Conservation Education

NACD Awarded Grant to Further Pollinator Conservation Education
   

Today, the National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) announced it was selected as the recipient of the David Rockefeller Fund Pollinator Education Initiative Grant through an agreement with the Pollinator Partnership.

NACD’s project was selected in late February to facilitate the development of a guide to conduct a pollinator conservation field day. Through this agreement, NACD will also develop online resources for students to further learn about and be tested on pollinator conservation, as well as lesson plans and materials for teachers to engage students in hands-on, habitat-focused outdoor activities.

“Conservation districts have a unique role in educating their communities, regularly emphasizing the significance of our hard-working pollinators,” NACD President Tim Palmer said. “Expanding pollinator-related conservation education will further strengthen on-the-ground work to enhance our country’s natural resources.”

Through the agreement, NACD will develop outdoor learning experiences for students in grades K-8, designed to encompass urban, suburban and rural schools and learning spaces. Pollinator-themed outdoor activities will bring students in contact with local natural resource professionals to learn about the sustainability of natural resources and pollinator habitat.

“It’s crucial that we educate students about the pollinators in their communities and the critical role they play,” Pollinator Partnership President Laurie Davies Adams said. “Through this project, NACD will work to get our next generations outside and learning about the bees, butterflies and other pollinator species in their backyards.”
