What does it mean to be a part of the Pollinator Project?

There are 39 congregations in varying stages of becoming Pollinator Sanctuaries. The Pollinator Project Steering Committee has developed a list of guidelines to assist congregations in implementing pollinator friendly practices. 


Is your congregation interested in the possibility of being a part of the Pollinator Project? Email Steering Committee Chairperson Tom Uecker here.

In order to raise awareness and support in your congregation for participating in this Pollinator Sanctuary movement, we encourage you to consider bringing it to your congregation council or annual meeting.  


Free Pollinator Sanctuary Yard Signs and Pollinator Sanctuary Fliers are available at the NE-MN Synod office. Please call ahead.
