EAST LANSING, Mich. – Michigan State University hosted a webinar series on establishing and maintaining pollinator habitats in solar projects.

The virtual field day was hosted in partnership with Rob Davis of Fresh Energy.

The virtual field day covered the following topics:

  • Showing the progression of pollinator habitat establishment sites over time, meaning from site prep and planting through each year of growth to the current year.
  • Setting realistic expectations for pollinator habitat establishment.

Speakers for each event were as follows:
