National Pollinator Week
June 19, 2017 - June 25, 2017
National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them
Ten 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.
The Pollinator Partnership is proud to announce that June 19-25, 2017 has been designated National Pollinator Week by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of the Interior.
POLLINATOR WEEK WAS INITIATED AND IS MANAGED BY THE POLLINATOR PARTNERSHIP.
Celebrate by planting natives for pollinators in your yard and register to be part of the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge. There’s tons of info for getting started including planting guides for regions all over the US and an app.
