The Northeastern Minnesota Bee Friendly Corridor is a new project to support pollinators and pollinator habitat. Carlton SWCD, Oldenburg Arts and Cultural Community and Xerces Society are partners in this collaboration. The NE MN Bee Friendly Corridor builds on the great work of our region’s beekeepers, gardeners, farmers and food producers. It is funded by the Lawn to Legumes program which began in 2019 and is administered by the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR).
