Robin Oanes and Rose Eddy, Pollinating Life

Date grant awarded: December 30, 2016

Decorah, Iowa has a highly successful community prairie that has inspired Robin Oanes and Rose Eddy to create Pollinating Life, a website aimed at increasing the knowledge about pollinators roles while providing funding opportunities to communities engaged in restoration projects. There is much work to be done regarding pollinators and their essential role in human survival and this project hopes to shed light into what we as humans can do. “All of us must learn to appreciate the pleasure and biological richness pollinators bring to our lives, and we feel that we will do this by providing practical information, beautiful photos, humorous experiences and thoughts and funding.”
