A World of Pollinators June 21 - 27, 2010

Celebrate Summer! Celebrate Pollinators!

This week was designated by Congress to help address the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations.  It has grown to be an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, butterflies, bats and beetles.
