National Pollinator Week
Five years ago, the U.S. Senate’s unanimously set aside the last week in June to bring attention to pollinating creatures, n an effort to address the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations and habitat.
Today, Pollinator Week is an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.
Pollinators are vital to our delicate ecosystem, supporting terrestrial wildlife, providing healthy watershed, and more. In addition, perhaps three-quarters of our food supply requires pollination.
So get out there and hug a bee or bake a cake for a butterfly!
