  • National Pollinator Week
    All day
    06/19/2017-06/25/2017

    National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them.

     

    Ten years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of a week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. Pollinator Week has now grown into an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.

     

    The Pollinator Partnership is proud to announce that June 19-25, 2017 has been designated National Pollinator Week by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of the Interior.

     

    Stop by Primex all week long and visit our pollinator friendly displays. Ask our staff about how you can incorporate pollinator friendly plants into your garden.
