Pollinators of the Palouse
Palouse Conservation District has partnered with Pullman Community Gardens at Koppel Farm, the City of Pullman, and National Association of Conservation Districts to establish the Koppel Farm Native Pollinator Garden. This plot contains native plants that provide important habitat for beneficial insects and birds. The Pollinator Project aims to involve community members in our effort to track the success of the Pollinator Garden. Join our project, "Koppel Farm Beneficial Insects and Birds" on iNaturalist, head over to Pullman Community Gardens at Koppel Farm and submit your observations of birds and insects in the area. While you're there, participate in Backyard Bingo at Koppel Farm to be entered in a raffle for your very own bee hotel. Watch our "Pollinators of the Palouse" video to learn more.
