KRC Receives Funding for Pollinator Protection Work in Kansas
The Kansas Rural Center (KRC) has been awarded $20,000 from the Ceres Trust to protect pollinators from the harms of pesticides. The funds will be used to bring together a diverse group of stakeholders to share information and education around strategies for protecting pollinators in the agricultural landscape in Kansas and working to increase pollinator populations in Kansas. A publication that provides information on resources for protecting pollinators from pesticides and increasing pollinator populations, both managed and native, on farms and ranches in Kansas will be created and made available through KRC. KRC will work to foster and strengthen community around pollinator protection in Kansas, making sure to include both long-time pollinator advocates and advocacy groups and voices new to the conversation.
