Pollinator Week is June 22-28, 2020
Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them. Pollinator Week was initiated and is managed by Pollinator Partnership. Thirteen 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 and beetles. This year we will begin to incorporate pollinator plants into the landscape at MSC. We’d love your help! Pollinator plants will attract butterflies, ladybugs and bees who in turn will help sustain our food supply. If you have an interest in gardening or the environment we’d love to include you in the process. If you have extra pollinator plants at home, we’d love to plant them at MSC where your legacy as an environmentalist will live on!
