Protect Our Pollinators is a nonprofit organization devoted to public education

                  and to the conservation of pollinators and their habitats.

The most commonly      used herbicide, Glyphosate (Roundup)

is wiping out the Monarch butterfly.

Systemic pesticides called Neonicotinoids (Neo-nics) 

are lethal to bees and other pollinators. 


Rusty-Patch Bumble Bee and other native bees are in decline primarily due to lack of floral resources and pesticide use.

​Here at Protect Our Pollinators we are taking our cue from our many solitary bee pollinators who have always understood safety in social distancing.


Like many of us who found gardening in the midst of Covid, we stayed safe and managed our Pollinator Pathway Gardens. Many thanks to all the wonderful volunteers who helped us plant, water and weed.
