Northern New England Pollinator Habitat Working Group
A multistate, multidisciplinary working group has been established to share information, assess critical research and outreach needs, and identify emerging issues in conservation, maintenance, and enhancement of pollinator habitat across northern New England (Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont). Factors that threaten pollinators and their habitat in this highly-forested region may differ from those in other parts of the country.

Bees and Their Habitats in Four New England States (PDF) Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont contain over 400 species of bees, about which little is known except for a few common species. Threats to bees include habitat loss, pests and pathogens, pesticides, and climate change. This publication explores practical methods for improving pollinator habitats to help meet goals in bee conservation and pollination security.
