Bobwhite Community Endorses Pollinator Legislation

Because the habitat interests of the pollinator supporters and the quail enthusiasts are so similar, the National Bobwhite Technical Committee recently endorsed the proposed “Highways Bettering the Economy and Environment Act of 2011,” or Highways BEE Act, scheduled for introduction in Congress this week, National Pollinator Week. As proposed by the Pollinator Partnership, it would direct the U.S. Secretary of Transportation to use existing mechanisms and funding to encourage the use of native plants and reduced mowing along highway rights-of-way to improve habitat for pollinators and other small grasslands wildlife species, including quail. Visit the Pollinator Partnership HERE to find out more about Pollinator Week, the legislation and the partnership.
