November 7, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am CST
This webinar will present two perspectives on how rural electric cooperatives are building pollinator habitat programs into their everyday operations.
Brad Foss, Senior Environmental Biologist at Dairyland Power Cooperative, coordinates Dairyland’s Pollinator Program. The program has helped Dairyland establish pollinator plots adjacent to its substations, on a closed coal ash landfill cap, and near 18 of its solar projects. Dairyland has also worked on the restoration a native bluff prairie.
Josh Young, Supervisor of Natural Resources and Environmental Communications at East Kentucky Power Cooperative, Inc. (EKPC), coordinates EKPC’s partnership in the Kentucky Excellence In Environmental Leadership project, or KY EXCEL. EKPC has been a partner in KY EXCEL since 2009, which recognizes voluntary work done by organizations to promote environmental stewardship. In 2017 EKPC established a 1.8-acre Monarch Waystation/Pollinator Habitat at its Headquarters location and adjacent to its new Cooperative Solar Farm One generating facility.
