The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund combines a diverse group – landowners, conservationists, seed companies, scientists, beekeepers and more – to help maintain a proven, sustainable habitat that will contribute to vital food production in the United States. To date, the following sponsors have joined the effort:

The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund:
The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund unites precisely target pollinators’ needs like never before, developing healthy, sustainable pollinator habitation based in science. The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund will continue to create Precision Habitat Projects consisting of a diverse mix of grasses and flowers that helps provide the ideal habitat for pollinators and wildlife – bees, butterflies, pheasant, geese, quail, deer and more.
“The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund is the bees’ buzz! The effort is integrating the very best performing habitat solutions where they are most needed, by bringing landowners and beekeepers together in a program where everyone benefits. It’s our goal to make every available acre the best it can be. It’s truly amazing just how much difference an acre can make when the habitat is engineered for maximum productivity!”
“This project is a unique conservation effort, targeting acres in regions where conversion to soy and corn is happening very fast. By identifying places where habitat makes the most sense, the bottom line improves for the grower, the beekeeper, the monarch, upland songbirds and game birds, honey bees and native pollinators – it’s a program that can’t lose!”
"The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund is unique in that it has found the way to plant cost-effective pollinator habitat that establishes quickly and provides great pollinator benefits. It's the trifecta of getting great pollinator benefits onto the landscape. If we try to solve the critical problems for pollinators using the same tools and methods we have used for the last decade, we won’t be successful. The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund brings new strategies, methods and partners together to save monarch butterflies, honey bees and other pollinators, not to mention the nation’s food supply and beautiful landscapes."
