Colorado Native Pollinating Insect Health Study

In response to Senate Bill 22-199, the Colorado Department of Natural Resources commissioned a study on native pollinating insects.  

“Pollinators are critical to Colorado's economy, especially agricultural production and food systems. They are also essential for flowering plants that support the State's diverse wildlife ecosystems and add color to Colorado's beautiful landscapes.”

This custom watercolor diagram was created in collaboration with Xerces Society to help visualize the priorities and recommendations outlined in the study.
