Pollinator Protection Committee

About Vermont's Pollinator Protection Committee:

Managed and native pollinators are important to agriculture, they work on farms pollinating our fruit and vegetables crops. They also provide honey and other bee-related products, adding to Vermont’s agricultural diversity. Nationally and globally, pollinators--such as bees, butterflies and other insects and small mammals, are under stress, and in some cases, in decline. In 2016, the Vermont legislature passed a bill (Act 83) creating a Pollinator Protection Committee. On this Committee, beekeepers, ecologists, government officials, researchers and the farming community are working together to conserve & improve pollinator health in Vermont.
