The program also includes demonstration neighborhoods, which are pollinator programs run by local governments and nonprofit organizations with support from BWSR, and a public education campaign to raise awareness about creating pollinator habitat. The Board of Water and Soil Resources is partnering with Metro Blooms and Blue Thumb – Planting for Clean Water to administer the program.
