Lincoln Conservation District if offering free pollinator seed mixes created for Northwest Montana and Lincoln County!
The seed mix contains plants with varying bloom times to provide a food source for pollinators all season long. Flowers of different shapes, sizes and colors are included to attract a variety of beneficial insects including bees, butterflies and moths to pollinate fruits, vegetables and nuts.
We will be launching our pollinator program in the spring of 2021. If you would like to be on our mailing list please call or email our office. We will have seeds available in early spring. If you would like to get a head start this fall on site preparation, consider downloading the Pollinator Planting Guide below.
Landowners can receive seed for plots of up to 2,500 square feet! To receive the seed mix, there are a few steps to follow:
