Nebraska Habitat Certification Program

160 certified pollinator habitats have been established in 22 counties, with 77% increasing their plant abundance and diversity.

Why create pollinator habitat? You are supplying pollinators with necessary food resources, nesting habitats, water and the pesticide-free environment they need. Causes of pollinator decline are numerous – habitat loss, improper use of pesticides, poor nutrition and disease.
