Pollinator Partnership is proud to announce that June 17-23, 2019 has been designated National Pollinator Week!

National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them.

Twelve 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 that has extended into Canada, promoting the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.

POLLINATOR WEEK WAS INITIATED AND IS MANAGED BY THE POLLINATOR PARTNERSHIP.

It's not too early to start thinking about your socially distant activity.
