On May 7th the Cody Ringnecks PF Chapter was asked to conduct a pollinator habitat program as part of University of Nebraska Extension’s Annual Ag Day. Over 100 High School students from North Platte High School attended the event where they learned about decreasing pollinator populations and the importance pollinators play in U.S. agriculture. In addition, the students helped plant a 1/2 acre pollinator project on Extension property. Once the site is established, the students will monitor the site to see if it is helping attract pollinators.
This project was made possible by the following partners: Nebraska Environmental Trust, SportDog, University of Nebraska Extension, and Cody Ringnecks Pheasants Forever.
The Cody Ringnecks Pheasants Forever (PF) chapter hosted the local Boy Scout Troop to help plant a ½ acre pollinator habitat project at the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission Hatchery on May 3rd. During the event, participants learned the importance of pollinating insects on the global food supply, made native bee nesting houses, and learned about the role pollinating insects play in the food chain for pheasant and quail chicks. After the project is established, participants will be invited back to assist the University of Nebraska in collecting data on the site to measure the success of the project.
Special thanks go to the Nebraska Environmental Trust, SportDog Inc., Nebraska Game & Parks Commission, University of Nebraska, Boy Scouts of America, and Cody Ringnecks Pheasants Forever for making this event possible!
This project is part of the organization’s National Youth Pollinator Habitat Program which supports local chapters across the country in educating and engaging youth and community groups on establishing critical pollinator habitat.
