Pollinator Project Rogue Valley is an all-volunteer Oregon state-registered nonprofit.
We joined together to promote the health of pollinators and people – for our food systems and ecosystems – in our communities and beyond. Working together, we can save our pollinators.
Together, We Can Create a Non Toxic Rogue Valley!
It is past time for cities, parks, and schools to stop using products that are toxic to pollinators, pets, and people. Thank you, Ashland Food Coop, for honoring us with a grant to help educate our community!
Non-Toxic Rogue Valley
is an initiative shared with Pollinator Project Rogue Valley.
Our goal is for everyone in the Rogue Valley – from Ashland to Grants Pass – to be able to enjoy safe, toxic-free public spaces: at schools, in parks, on city properties, and even along roadsides. We are currently working with Talent and Jacksonville – is your city next?
City and county governments everywhere are beginning to reconsider the use of toxic chemicals which have been used for decades, and are now finding safer, less toxic solutions to landscape care. It is possible to have a beautiful and healthy landscape that is safe for people, pets, and pollinators!

What is Bee City USA?
Bee City USA designation is both an honor and a responsibility. Launched in 2012, the Bee City USA program endorses a set of standards, defined in a resolution, for creating sustainable habitats for pollinators, which are vital to feeding the planet. Cities, towns and communities across America are invited to adopt these standards and become a Bee City USA affiliate.
