Well-managed rangelands are important to pollinators because they provide the habitat pollinators need to survive and support pollinator species not found elsewhere. Rangelands evolved with natural disturbance processes such as bison grazing and fire. Today, rangeland that is not managed with activities such as grazing, haying, prescribed fire and/or herbicide application, is likely to become dominated by invasive or woody species and accumulate large amounts of litter and duff that hinders plant growth and seed germination, particularly for wildflowers that serve as food sources for pollinators. However, management can also have negative effects on pollinators. We outline best management practices on rangelands for pollinator conservation and habitat management throughout the Great Plains and provide examples of implementation.
