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 of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.
This year National Pollinator Week will be celebrated June 17-23, 2019.
POLLINATOR WEEK WAS INITIATED AND IS MANAGED BY POLLINATOR PARTNERSHIP
