NRCS documents for pollinator conservation and enhancement:

The 2008 and 2014 Farm Bills both made pollinators a priority for all USDA conservation programs. See Using 2014 Farm Bill Programs for Pollinator Conservation for details. To support this mandate, state and national guidance documents have been developed by the NRCS to help conservation planners and landowners who are working to protect and improve pollinator habitat.

These technical documents include plant lists, fact sheets, and other general guidance such as technical notes, habitat installation guides, and habitat assessment guides that provide additional information to improve planning and implementation of conservation practices or broaden understanding of a practice's value. The NRCS and its partners have also presented and recorded webinars to help train NRCS staff, partners, and landowners on pollinator habitat conservation techniques.

The following table lists links to national, regional, and State-specific NRCS guidance on pollinator conservation. NRCS administrative regions follow.

  • West Region: AK, AZ, CA, CO, HI, ID, MT, NM, NV, OR, Pacific Islands Area, UT, WA, WY
  • Central Region: IL, IN, IA, KS, MN, MO, NE, ND, OK, SD, TX, WI
  • Northeast: CT, DC, DE, ME, MD, MA, MI, NH, NJ, NY, OH, PA, RI, VT, WV
  • Southeast: AL, AR, Caribbean Area, FL, GA, KY, LA, MS, NC, SC, TN, VA
