Pollinator Project at Mid Michigan College

Join MUCC, the Michigan DNR, and Pheasants Forever at Mid Michigan College’s Pollinator Project event in Mt. Pleasant!

Pollinators play a critical role in sustaining ecosystems and human agricultural production, but their populations are currently experiencing radical declines. One way to combat this downward-trend in pollinators is by restoring their habitat. Mid Michigan College has taken the initiative and set aside a 1/2 acre plot to be managed as native grassland habitat. This habitat will not only benefit the many pollinator species sustained by native wildflowers and grasses, but also an abundance of game and non-game wildlife species.

Paired with presentations from the DNR and Mid Michigan College faculty regarding pollinators and how to manage your property as habitat for them, volunteers will be given the opportunity to plant native wildflower and grass species in the new plot.

The event takes place from 11:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. at the Mid Michigan College campus in Mt. Pleasant. You can view the PDF version of the flyer here: Pollinator Flyer.

Come out and make a difference for wildlife!

    Wondering if anyone has been selected for the pollinator friendly garden grant?

      Hi Trisha,

      I’m not familiar with that grant. Do you know who administers it? If you would like to discuss pollinator projects and related grants, you’re welcome to reach out to me at mlabutte@mucc.org and I will do my best to help.

      Thank you,

      Makhayla LaButte
