Ecological Collaboration: Partners for Pollinators

The Impact of the Tennessee Pollinator Habitat Program

The Partners for Pollinators Working Group, led by TDOT, is a collaborative effort involving four State of Tennessee agencies, non-profit partners, as well as landscape architects, and ecologists. This initiative represents a significant stride towards environmental sustainability in Tennessee. These efforts not only benefit local wildlife but also boost agricultural productivity and enhance the scenic beauty of our landscapes.
