To be eligible for a MAG Pollinator Habitat Grant, projects must create or enhance an outdoor pollinator habitat that fulfills the specific requirements of the Monarchs Across Georgia Pollinator Habitat Certification. A certificate will be provided as a benefit to each grant recipient when the requirements are fulfilled. We recommend that you also certify your habitat with the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail and the Monarch Watch Monarch Waystation programs for educational purposes, but these are not grant requirements. The project must include an educational component (e.g., signage, brochure, program, outreach) regarding pollination and promote MAG's Pollinator Habitat Certification Program.
Until 2016, grant monies were derived from the profits made on MAG's native plant sales and from the financial support of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Southeast Region. We appreciate the technical advice and funds provided through the Partners for Fish and Wildlife program. We also are honored to partner with the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail in habitat restoration and conservation efforts. Grant monies for the 2019-20 fiscal year have come exclusively from MAG's native plant sales.
Congratulations to our latest grant recipients!
