The Pollinator Conservation Association (PCA)
The Pollinator Conservation Association is a Western New York based, not-for-profit organization (501 (c) (3), that supports pollinator conservation through initiatives and action plans that promote community engagement, collaboration, education, and implementation strategies based on science and ecological integrity. We encourage a whole systems approach which means looking at plant communities and ecosystems as evolutionary systems that work together to promote healthy pollinators and a healthy planet. We appreciate attractive gardens that are designed for pollinators, but we encourage deeper ecological planning and concepts that embrace wholistic systems, biodiversity and an "ecological community" approach. The Pollinator Conservation Association engages individuals, organizations, educational institutions, government agencies and departments, and private businesses to collaborate and promote pollinator conservation planning strategies and projects in the Great Lakes region.
