Join us in celebrating pollinators! Each year, the third full week of June is set aside to honor pollinators, those hardworking and often under appreciated animals that are essential for the health of our environment and the productivity of our farms. Pollinator Week 2020 starts on Monday, June 22. During the week, we will be sharing updates on our key program areas and how you can help support these important creatures—this week and throughout the year.
Indeed, every week is Pollinator Week for us at the Xerces Society. We’re proud to say that we have the world’s largest team of conservationists dedicated to protecting pollinators. Our work extends from conserving the most imperiled pollinators through our endangered species program, to protecting these vital invertebrates from harmful chemicals with the work of our pesticide program, to creating and managing habitat thanks to our pollinator conservation program. Our pollinator conservation work also spans a wide array of landscapes, from communities that have achieved Bee City USA and Bee Campus USA affiliate status to farmers that have earned the Bee Better Certified seal; from parks and natural areas to home gardens; and agricultural lands of all sizes and uses, including rangeland, orchards, and crop fields.
Each day we work with, and are inspired by, the myriad people who are making tangible commitments to support pollinators.
