Pollinator Week June 20-26, 2011

The Pollinator Partnership is proud to announce that June 20-26, 2011 has been designated National Pollinator Week by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 
 

Five years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of the final week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. In just a few years Pollinator Week has grown to be an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.

Pollinating animals, including bees, birds, butterflies, bats, beetles and others, are vital to our delicate ecosystem, supporting terrestrial wildlife, providing healthy watershed, and more. Therefore, Pollinator Week is a week to get the importance of pollinators’ message out to as many people as possible.

 

Whether you are a farmer of many acres, a backyard gardener, or an urban container gardener, you can increase the number of pollinators in your area by making conscience choices to include plants that provide essential habitat for bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, hummingbirds, and other pollinators.  Invite pollinators to your neighborhood by planting a pollinator friendly habitat in your garden, farm, school or park.  Click here to find out the perfect plants that attract pollinators and help you build beautiful pollinator habitat in your specific area!
