Minnesota DNR unveils design of state’s newest critical habitat license plate

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources unveiled the design of the state’s newest critical habitat license plate Thursday.   It’s the 10th specialty plate created for the program. D-N-R commissioner Sarah Strommen says the colorful new plate features native pollinators including a bee and butterflies.

The pollinator license plate was designed by artist Timothy Turenne. It depicts the monarch butterfly – which is Minnesota’s state butterfly – and the rusty patched bumble bee, which was recently named the state bee by the Minnesota Legislature.

The new plate is available now online and at deputy registrar and driver’s license offices statewide.
