The OSU Pollinator Health Program focuses on designing, developing, implanting, and evaluating a state-wide pollinator health strategy; The Oregon Bee Project. The focus of the Oregon Bee Project is not restricted to the Oregon’s four managed pollinator species (honey bees, alfalfa leafcutter bees, orchard mason bees and alkali bees) but also to the state’s rich endowment of wild species. Over the coming months we will be working with partners to develop the Oregon Bee Project website with other state agency partners to provide a round-up of tools for pollinators in Oregon.
The program is currently working on:
Thank you, Oregon for taking these steps to protect pollinators!

Dr. Mogren is an assistant researcher of pollinator ecology at University of Hawaii Manoa, with a research program focused on how nutrition can be used to increase pollinator health to mitigate stress caused by pesticides, parasites, and disease. After receiving her PhD in Entomology from UC Riverside, she went on to two postdoctoral positions with… Continue reading
Oregon is one of the biggest vegetable seed producing states in the US. In this episode, we catch up with Robyn Shephard, an agronomist with Lakeside Ag-Ventures, in a red radish seed field to learn how hybrid systems work and the steps vegetable seed growers are taking to keep bees healthy during pollination. You can… Continue reading
