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!
