Bee-Friendly Towns and Campuses

One of our major goals is to inspire towns and campuses to adopt bee friendly policies and implement pollinator projects. Let us know if you would like to work on your town or campus!

Projects and Resolutions in w. Mass Towns

Residents are initiating town projects benefitting pollinators and are working to pass resolutions to adopt pollinator friendly land care practices on municipal land.  


These actions raise community awareness, which results in more bee-safe habitat and fewer chemicals poisoning the ecosystem.


Read about the town resolution process, and towns that passed resolutions like Cummington, Williamstown, Great Barrington, and others.

On our Pollinator Pathway page, read about pollinator projects in other active towns, like Northampton and Greenfield.

A leading resource for tools and ideas is the BeeCityUSA website.


BeeCityUSA has created it's BeeCampusUSA project through which campuses can follow a set of principles to be recognized as a certified pollinator-friendly campus. Their website is an excellent resource for tools and ideas.


Each and every campus in western Mass is an opportunity to expand safe pollinator habitat and to find creative solutions in the academic community. We are available to work with individuals who have connections on local campuses that want to pursue a campus certification.
