Really nice to see projects like this! Finding suitable land for this kind of larger scope project is not as difficult as we might think.

There is a lot of land in the 'rights-of-way' category that is eminently suitable for establishing pollinator habitat. These rights-of-way pass through prime land as much as they do through 'waste' land. They provide opportunities to establish all kinds of habitat for many different species of plants and animals.

A rights-of-way can serve both a utility function and support an ecosystem function. We need to let the utility owners know that both functions are important to us, and to future generations.

Well said! Of course I totally agree, but it is reassuring that the process has bee happening, most recently with this power company. Near where I live is the Seabrook Nuclear Power Station of New Hampshire. They have groomed their surrounding property into animal friendly plants and shrubs. Yes, they could be more diligent, but just the fact that companies are thinking in this direction gives a small bit of hope in these dire times...
