National Pollinator Week 2013 is June 17-23

Celebrate National Pollinator Week!

Beetles and butterflies and bats, oh my! These pollinators, along with hummingbirds and flies, fertilize plants as they carry pollen from one plant to another while gathering nectar.

We rely on pollinators for agriculture and forestry. They pollinate more than 150 different kinds of fruits, vegetables and nuts to provide a third of what we eat and drink in the U.S; about $20 billion-worth!
Join us as we celebrate National Pollinator Week across the region. To find a Pollinator Week Event near you, visit:
