Anonymous members of WCHF voting member organization Natural Resources Foundation of Wisconsin recently donated $500,000 to establish the Wisconsin Pollinator Protection Fund which will support native pollinator conservation across the State. This donation requires a matching donation to establish a permanent endowment fund for Wisconsin pollinator conservation.

Goals of the program include:

  1. capacity building for Wisconsin polliantor conservation
  2. habitat creation and enhancement
  3. research and monitoring
  4. education and outreach
