The White River Alliance Needs Your HELP Creating a Buzz!

As you may know, the White River Alliance is partnering with the Indiana Office of the State Chemist to develop a new feature within the Clear Choices Clean Water native plants campaign. This new element will focus on protecting pollinators—bees, butterflies, and all the other important insects involved with plant pollination.

It’s big business: estimates of the value pollinators provide to the economy range into the BILLIONS of dollars. Not only are they intimately involved in agricultural production, but pollinators are an important part of the biological diversity that benefits us all in a myriad of ways.

Many organizations are working to promote pollinator protection today. That’s because many pollinator populations are threatened. The Alliance and our partners at the Office of the State Chemist are interested in understanding what people already know about these species and their role in the economy and environment in order to help make the Clear Choices pollinator campaign as effective as possible. We recently released a survey to help us gauge public opinion and knowledge about the subject, and we would like to enlist your help to encourage participation. The survey is located online here:
