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.
