Conservation of Minneapolis Bees Project

The Conservation of Minneapolis Bees (C.O.M.B.) project's goals are to provide resources for residents, increase pollinator habitat, and increase awareness of pollinator-friendly practices.

Resources for residents


Free pollinator seeds

You can get free pollinator seeds for any Minneapolis resident while supplies last. Seedles are wildflower seed balls or pollinator push pops that help provide healthy plants - food and shelter for pollinators - in your yard and boulevard.

A City that works - pollinator project

Environmental Health inspector Tiana Cervantes spends part of her job building pollinator habitats in collaboration with the Healthy Bees Healthy Lives campaign.

Pollinator populations are in sharp decline, so Tiana has chosen to organize the construction of 150 patches and planted more than 200 trees, providing pesticide-free nutrition for pollinators throughout Minneapolis.
