Our roads and highways present unique opportunities for creating corridors to support monarchs and other pollinators. In some areas, roadsides may be the only places where milkweed and nectar plants may be available. When managed with pollinators in mind, roadsides have the potential to add miles and miles of high-quality habitat while reducing maintenance costs. Learn more about how roadsides can be managed to reduce costs and protect pollinators.

The resources provided here are just a sampling of links related to managing roadsides and rights-of-way for pollinators. To view all of our right-of-way management resources, including guidelines and best management practices click here.
