Pollinator & Beneficial Insect Conservation Plans


The Xerces Society’s Pollinator & Beneficial Insect Conservation Plans identify baseline habitat conditions for pollinators and other beneficial insects on your farm, and offer recommendations that can increase their abundance.

Pollinator & Beneficial Insect Conservation Plans outline farm conservation strategies designed to improve pollinator foraging and nesting habitat. These conservation practices can benefit farms by enhancing crop pollination and yields, and increasing natural pest suppression.

Note that, in many cases, eligible farms can access this service at reduced or no cost when contacting us through the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). To determine your eligiblity for a “Conservation Activity Plan” through the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), visit the NRCS website.
