Laurie Davies Adams Retires, Pollinator Partnership Seeks Replacement

The Pollinator Partnership (P2) invites applications for its Executive Director position. P2’s founder and long-time Executive Director Laurie Davies Adams announced her pending retirement at the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign annual conference in October, 2016. Laurie launched the Pollinator Partnership twenty years ago in San Francisco when there was relatively little talk of bees or monarch butterflies.

Saying she leaves huge shoes to fill is a gross understatement. She has led the organization in creating the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign (NAPPC), National Pollinator Week and 31 Ecoregional Native Planting Guides for Pollinators. Laurie has signed agreements with over 11 federal agencies influencing over 1.5 billion acres of US land to encourage pollinator conservation. ​She was a key consultant with the White House on the Presidential Memorandum on Pollinators and instrumental in the development of the National Strategy to Promote the Health of Honey Bees and Other Pollinators.

P2 initiated the National Academies of Science National Research Council study, “Status of Pollinators of North America,” which generated over 300 articles; collectively wrote White Paper “Bombus terrestrus”; published multiple in-house peer-reviewed publications on pollinator conservation and biology as well as publications in industry magazines and journals influencing policy and practice. P2 also created and maintains a vibrant Listserv for daily updates to stakeholders. P2 developed educational brochures on wide ranging topics and organized annual pollinator posters – approx. 500K distributed all around the world.

Bee City USA is extremely grateful to Laurie and P2 for the resources they have shared, the introductions they have made through NAPPC, and for their encouragement to our young organization.
