Description:

The Master Pollinator Steward Program is an unbiased, research-based curriculum, which includes hands-on activities and classroom presentations.

They also support healthy ecosystems that clean the air, stabilize soils and support wildlife. Studies show that pollinator populations are in decline because of a loss of feeding and nesting habitats, pollution and the misuse of pesticides. This program trains how to protect our agricultural economy and food supply with a series of classes. A five-part series of MU publications was created for this class series.  more...
