Upper Valley Pollinator Partners
UV Pollinator Partners is a coalition to promote awareness of the decline of native pollinators and to inspire actions to reverse this decline. Use this link for the current list of partners, including towns, Upper Valley conservation organizations, garden clubs, school groups, and others.
Poster and Calendar for Pollinator Events
Our Poster is formatted to download for posting or sharing. There is also a Calendar of event information with the latest information and details for each event. Some pollinator events will be planned later in the spring and information for all new pollinator events will be placed in the Calendar and on the homepage of the Hanover Biodiversity Committee. Both will be updated as needed.
Pollinator Gardens (coming soon)
This link has details about the National Pollinator Garden Challenge and a list of nearby pollinator gardens to visit in the Upper Valley. We will create a list of the new pollinator gardens as they are created in 2017.
