Counties are Invited to Webinar on Combining Pollinator Landscapes with Solar Installations

The Virginia Pollinator Smart Solar Program will be holding a virtual stakeholder meeting for localities on Tuesday, September 8, from 9-11am. The program is designed to provide incentives and tools for the solar industry to adopt a native plant strategy to meet soil and water control regulations, community needs, and the needs of our biosphere. Developed with input from many stakeholders, natural resource scientists, and environmental policy experts, the program’s materials provide detailed guidance for planning, designing, installing, and maintaining a Pollinator-Smart habitat at a solar facility.

This virtual stakeholder meeting, targeted specifically to county and local boards, will introduce the program, the benefits of participation, and ways it can be used to achieve local goals.
