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

Twelve 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.

Pollinator Week was initiated and is managed by Pollinator Partnership.

Wonder how YOU can help the Monarch butterfly!

In the last 20 years, the Monarch butterfly has declined by 90% and this declined has been traced back to early 1900s, and even more so on the West Coast with a decline of upwards  of 97%

The decline of the milkweed plant is in direct correlation with the decline the Monarch butterflies. Milkweed is the Monarch butterfly’s only host plant. Without milkweed, there will be no Monarch butterflies. 

By planting more milkweed, and raising eggs and larvae to adulthood, you can increase the chances of an egg reaching adulthood from just 5% to 95%. 

It’s easy. It’s fun. And it’s for the whole family!!!
