Partners in Conservation:
Project Wingspan is a two-year project by the Pollinator Partnership, who leads a coalition of partners in an effort to enhance land across the Midwest to support our imperiled pollinators. For the past year, Mason State has partnered with Project Wingspan, cleaning the hand-collected seed from volunteers all over the state.
Want to get involved? Project Wingspan is looking for volunteers and landowners who are committed to the conservation of monarch, rusty patched bumble bee and other Illinois pollinators to help with seed collection, habitat development and many more opportunities!
