When the Environment was added as an Area of Focus in 2020, the Clubs of District 6600 rose to the challenge to show that Rotarians are people of action. These projects have ranged from Wetland reconstruction efforts to clean our waterways and drinking water, to pollinator prairies and gardens to improve the biodiversity health around us, to waste reduction and cleanup events to do our part as individuals. We have shown that we can be leaders in caring for the land and life around us.

Operation Pollination Initiative

When Spring arrives, remember to plant native to support pollinators in your garden! See the attached PDF to learn more about Operation Pollination, and for gardening tips to support pollinators in NW Ohio.

The Resolution and Pledge can be found here under Operation Pollination.

Your Ohio District Governors respectfully request that ALL Club Presidents consider signing a Pollinator Pledge online at the web site above. It’s so simple. A few clicks and you’re done. PLEASE discuss ideas with your respective clubs, get buy-in, and sign the Pledge, so you’ll be ready to act.

Operation Pollination is an inclusive framework where everyone (Rotary and other organizations) is invited to participate.  PLEASE use your incredible networking skills to recruit other organizations to join you and sign their own Pollinator Pledge.  These organizations can be large or small, government or non-government, for profit or not-for-profit. EVERYONE.  

Please also know that there is never any judgment about your project and that your signing a Pledge is based only on Rotary’s Four Way Test.  No one will ever come to check up on your project.  From planting three milkweed seeds to restoring a prairie (and everything in between), all projects are treated the same. No judgment. These projects are all based on your capability, capacity, and interest in pollinator protection.
