Michigan Pollinator Protection Plan
The purpose of Michigan’s Managed Pollinator Protection Plan (MP3) is to improve and protect the health of pollinators in Michigan, while simultaneously protecting our crops, property, and human health. The MP3 is non-regulatory; it will provide guidance. It is also designed to be flexible, and will improve as we receive input from stakeholders, and new strategies become available.
Recognizing that all states differ, it is crucial to tailor Michigan’s MP3 to fit individual situations and to encourage best management practices (BMPs) that are most applicable to our particular situation. There will be a system in place that will periodically review the efficacy of the MP3 and provide an outlet to amend it as necessary.
This website will serve as a location to find Michigan’s Managed Pollinator Protection Plan, view updates and amendments on the MP3, post comments and discussion on the plan, and give feedback on what aspects should be included in the final draft. The purpose of the state plan will be listed, as well as timelines for the MP3, and a database of upcoming stakeholder meetings concerning the MP3 Development.
