The Pollinator Steward Certification is a unique program offered by Pollinator Partnership Canada (P2C) to Project Swallowtail's block ambassadors and to PollinateTO Groups during a special, customized Spring 2021 online training.

Certification as a Pollinator Steward demonstrates that you have a science-based understanding of pollinators and gives you the practical know-how to help them. Certification also shows that you have used your knowledge to create habitat and educate others.

Two components must be completed to become Certified as a Pollinator Steward:

1. Attend all six sessions of the training workshop (online)
