                                          Pollinator Week June 21-27 

Pollinator Week is an annual event celebrated internationally in support of pollinator health.  It's a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what we can do to protect them.  The great thing about Pollinator Week is that you can celebrate and get involved any way you like!  Popular events include painting for pollinators, hosting socially distant garden tours, participating in online bee and butterfly ID workshops and so much more. www.pollinator.org
