Client & Industry Needs for Pollinator & Prairie Habitat Services
The power industry continues to see pollinator-friendly initiatives requested and/or required by community stakeholders, permitting agencies, and even their own corporate sustainability initiatives. There is little debate about why reduced populations of pollinators such as bees, bats, and butterflies is concerning; however, there is a lot of discussion around how power projects and organizations can and should adopt and/or apply pollinator restoration services for project, community, and organizational value.
