It’s National Pollinator Week 2017!
About a decade ago, U.S. Senate unanimously approved for a week in June to be annually designated as National Pollinator Week. This year, from 19 – 25 Jun 2017, our Nation is celebrating this week to focus on pollinators, their conservation and ways to help continue to fight for them.
This week I’ll be providing some key events or tips to help out any pollinator in your garden. As many of your plants are well into their early summer bloom or just ending their spring display, the pollinators are hungry and busy feeding and helping to raise new young. In many cases, butterflies and hummingbirds have possibly traveled many miles to finally arrive back in Northern Arlington to raise a new brood. Exciting stuff!
Where can you go to find more? Check out the Pollinator Partnership website here: http://pollinator.org/pollinatorweek/. This site gives many tools and resources about pollinators, and specifically Pollinator Week.
Stay tuned this week for more information on this great effort and ways we can all take an active part.
Until next time!
