Pollinator Habitat Program:

Native prairie flowers, clover, and other pollinator-friendly species are vital in creating and maintaining the habitats that many species like honeybees, butterflies, and native bees depend on. The Stearns County SWCD Pollinator Habitat Program provides free, high-quality seed along with technical assistance to help restore and maintain habitats for many years to come.
