Grants of $1,000 to Minnesota, Iowa, and Wisconsin high school educators to teach students about pollinators. Funding is intended for projects that help to enhance habitats for monarch butterflies and insect pollinators. Grants may be used to grow native plants in greenhouses and to replant them in rural regions.
The Foundation is seeking proposals to have students propagate native forbs (wildflowers) in school greenhouses and transplant them next spring with collaborating landowners. The grant program strives to increase the diversity of native forbs within an agricultural landscape for the benefit of native bees, honeybees, and monarch butterflies. Applicants must commit to finding a suitable site for transplanting.
Ideally, applicants will team up with a farmer (to enhance a field buffer, CRP, etc) or other private property such as an agricultural or rural electric co-op. School properties can be considered if dedicated to agricultural or natural habitat purposes. In all cases, proper site preparation prior to transplanting will be key to a successful outcome.
Successful applicants will receive 640 small seedlings of five native forb species in late March or early April. Students will grow out these plants in a school greenhouse or other suitable indoor area, transplant them onto an appropriate site in late May or June, and maintain and monitor the plants through the summer.

Teachers will receive a training webinar, remote consultation from a private native plant nursery, and a $1,000 cash award paid to their school district or FFA chapter to offset project expenses.
