As National Pollinator Week (June 18–24) approaches, a Syngenta team is
preparing to embark on a road trip up the Monarch Highway (Interstate
35) to bring awareness to some of the people who contribute to
pollinator health and stewardship. The I-35 corridor is recognized as
the Monarch Highway, because it parallels the central flyway of the
monarch migration across the United States.

Throughout the week of June 18, the team will travel through Texas,
Oklahoma, Kansas, Iowa and Minnesota to meet with a diverse
cross-section of researchers, conservationists and landowners who are
helping protect pollinators and improve their health.
“Highlighting the many ways various individuals and organizations are
helping pollinators thrive is the primary goal of this road trip,” said
Caydee Savinelli, pollinator and IPM stewardship lead, Syngenta.
“Pollinator health and stewardship is important to agriculture and
Syngenta, and our Operation
Pollinator program is making a positive impact. But caring for
pollinators is much larger than any one company. Improving pollinator
health and practicing good stewardship take the combined effort, support
and expertise from multiple stakeholders.”
The approximately 1,700-mile road trip will include stops with experts
at nearly a dozen locations. Their stories, photos, videos and quotes
will be shared via social media, using #OperationPollinator.
“We’re looking forward to hearing from a variety of experts and sharing
their insights via social media,” said Ann Bryan, senior manager,
external communications, Syngenta. “There are many positive stories and
examples of healthy pollinators and good stewardship practices, and we
want to celebrate and shine a spotlight on these efforts.”
