Massachusetts Pollinator Network

Lead Sponsors and Partners include:

Pollinator protection communities from the seacoast to the Berkshires are collaborating with NOFA/Mass to build a state-wide hub for native pollinator protection.

The Massachusetts Pollinator Network will build upon the momentum of the Western Mass Pollinator Network, Bee Friendly Williamstown, Mystic Charles Pollinator Pathways, Wing and a Prayer Pollinator Nursery, Greening Greenfield’s Planting for Pollinators!, and others working toward a unifying statewide vision of protecting native pollinators – and insect biodiversity more generally. This network will also be integrated with with the work of the Community Pesticides Reduction (CPR) Network (a project of NOFA/Mass and Community Action Works) and the NOFA/Mass Policy Department

Together, we will protect and expand pollinator habitats and reduce the use of biocides in landscapes across the Commonwealth!

VICTORY FOR POLLINATORS!

On March 1st, 2021, the Mass. Pesticide Board Subcommittee passed a motion to protect pollinators by restricting the use of neonic pesticides. The new regulations, which go into effect in 2022, will remove pesticide products containing neonics from retail stores.
