Update on the Utah Pollinator Habitat Grant Program

In this episode of This Green Earth , Nell Larson and guest co-host Katy Wang will speak with Mindy Wheeler, the rare plants coordinator for the state of Utah.

House Bill (HB) 224 was passed by the Utah legislature in March 2021. It tasks the Utah Department of Agriculture and Food (UDAF) with creation of a three-year pilot program to improve pollinator habitat in Utah. UDAF is currently receiving support from local non-profits and other conservation specialists with initial efforts to establish the pilot program.

Mindy explains what it means to protect Utah’s native plants, and share the results of their new Utah Pollinator Habitat Grant program.
