Thank You, Rogue Valley, for your support of the first-ever The Rogue Valley Pollinator Anthology! This incredible project happened because of the amazing 65 contributors, 20 sponsors, donors, volunteers and community!
In just six months, we raised interest and funds to host four events during a two-month long Gallery Show at Catalyst Ashland and print 200 copies of an incredible art and education piece dedicated to pollinators in our valley. Our expectations have been exceeded, and we are delighted that 100% of proceeds from purchases of our 312-page Pollinator Anthology supports PPRV and future projects.
Thank you for making this educational literary arts project a success and being part of a legacy raising awareness and inspiring a movement of people passionate about connecting and restoring pollinators and their native habitat to our everyday world.
Visit Pollinator Project Rogue Valley to learn more and purchase your anthology!

June 1, 2022
We were thrilled with our first Media Day with some of the local media, as well as a few of the anthology contributors: Rory Finney, David Lee Myers, Shoshanah Dubiner, Kat McIver, Jim Thompson, and Iveta Mulhall. It was an amazing witness to the mind, heart and soul of the community discussing the importance of caring for our local ecology for the next generation!
