To Learn more about national Pollinator Week, visit the Pollinator Partnership:
“National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them
Eleven years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of a week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. Pollinator Week has now grown into an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.
The Pollinator Partnership is proud to announce that June 18-24, 2018 has been designated National Pollinator Week.”
