Why should I support The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund?

The Bee & Butterfly Habitat Fund:

How is The Bee & Butterfly Fund different from other organizations supporting pollinators?

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!”

Zac Browning, Co-owner, Browning’s Honey Co., Inc.

“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!”

Danielle Downey, Executive Director, Project Apis m.

"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."
