National Pollinator Week

The Xerces Society writes

It is National Pollinator Week, a time each year when we pause to celebrate bees, butterflies, and other pollinators and recognize everything that they bring into our lives, from fruits and vegetables to fibers for the fabrics we wear to the beauty of spring-time meadows and the pumpkins we carve into eerie Halloween jack-o’-lanterns.

For the Xerces Society, however, every week is pollinator week! Thanks to the generous support of our donors — individuals, foundations, agencies, and companies — we now have pollinator conservation specialists based in 16 states. Their work reaches wider, with new habitat installed or planned in 25 states and workshops presented in all 50. As a result, nearly 700,000 acres of pollinator habitat have been restored or protected in the last decade — including 270,000 acres last year alone — and tens of thousands of people learn how to protect pollinators each year.
