Insectaries for Pollinators and Farm Biodiversity 2010-2012
NOE - Notice of Exemption
This project will work to create or enhance pollinator habitat on less than two acres of farmland in the Salmon Creek Watershed in western Sonoma County, through revegtation and habitat enhancement efforts using native or non-invasive plants that serve as pollen and nectar sources. Project sites will be mulched and irrigation will be installed where feasible. Sites will be monitored for establishment success and native bee populations for three years once planting is complete. Project partners will organize and facilitate at least one workshop to promote on-farm native pollinator habitat.
