Chattanooga Area Pollinator Partnership

The Chattanooga Area Pollinator Partnership is a project of the Tennessee Valley Chapter of Wild Ones.  The mission of CHAPP is to improve pollinator habitat in the Chattanooga area for butterflies, bees, moths, bats, hummingbirds and other beneficial insects/animals. CHAPP is inspired by the Greater Atlanta Pollinator Partnership.

The goals of CHAPP are to:

  1. Increase pollinator habitat.
  2. Educate and inform about pollinator conservation.
  3. Cultivate the Chattanooga area community to value, promote, and support pollinator conservation research, citizen science projects, and pollinator habitat restoration.
  4. Develop clear guidelines for pollinator-friendly habitat design and installation, and restoration of abandoned/endangered sites.
  5. Incorporate school and community participation, with special emphasis on under-served areas.
  6. Involve program partners and Southeastern citizens to advocate for pollinator conservation and gardens.
