To celebrate and support native and wild pollinator populations, HHMI Tangled Bank Studios and PBS Nature are launching #PlantWildflowers, a nationwide education and action initiative to highlight pollinator diversity and spark local efforts to support wild pollinators.
Across the US.. and Canada, they’re inviting libraries to host localized pollinator celebration events that will build community collaborations, highlight the crucial role bees and other pollinators play, and give members the opportunity to support local pollinators by planting native wildflowers. Selected libraries will receive a $1,000 honorarium, regionalized pollinator-friendly wildflower seed packets for distribution, and a variety of informal and formal pollinator-focused educational activity tools.
Participating libraries will be asked to host at least two events during the Spring and Summer of 2022, each with a focus on engaging family audiences, or other constituents.
All materials, other than the honorarium and the seed packets and displays, will be available for free to all libraries, whether selected to participate as a premiere #PlantWildflowers partner or not. Learn more.
