Pollinator Week will be celebrated June 20-26 in Carrboro, as proclaimed by Mayor Damon Seils.
Did you know that pollinators are responsible for 1 out of every 3 bites of food you take? This is just one of the reasons that pollinators are crucial for the environment. Pollinators are responsible for pollinating about 90% of all flowering plants, and these plants couldn’t exist without them! Pollinator week is a way to learn, celebrate, and protect pollinators.
In October 2014, the Town of Carrboro became the third municipality in the national to be recognized as a Bee City USA. Pollinator species are essential partners in producing much of our food supply and provide significant environmental benefits necessary for maintaining healthy, diverse urban and suburban ecosystems.
Learn more about how you can support bees and other pollinators – and how the Town of Carrboro is creating pollinator habitats by installing native bee nest boxes, establishing a pollinator garden, and planting pollinator-friendly vegetation to restore a riparian buffer.
