Preparing for Pollinator WeekBy Tim Hodson

Did you know that National Pollinator Week is just two weeks away? It will take place June 17-23.

According to the Pollinator Partnership, Pollinator Week is a week “to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them.”

National Pollinator Week was created 12 years ago by the Pollinator Partnership — a non-profit 501(c)3 organization dedicated exclusively to the protection and promotion of pollinators and their ecosystems.

Over the last decade, Pollinator Week has grown into an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.

During the week, events will be taking place across the United States to draw attention to and celebrate the importance of pollinators. It is a week of fun and education and it is all about pollinators.

As of last week, governors in more than 35 states had already made official proclamations for National Pollinator Week — and by the time June 23 rolls around all 50 states are expected to make declarations.

Do you have any plans for National Pollinator Week? If you don’t you still have time to plan events and celebrate with your customers and employees.

The Pollinator Partnership has put together a comprehensive guide to participating in National Pollinator Week.  Click here to visit the Partnership’s website and you will find a toolbox full of activity ideas, social media posts, swag and more. There are also photos and images that you can you on social media and in other promotions.
