Bats, bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.
Those are just a few of the pollinators being celebrated during the second annual National Pollinator Week, June 22-28, 2008.
Pollinator week raises awareness about the need to care for and help preseve the creatures that help pollinate our crops to help maintain thriving food sources.
The enormous success of National Pollinator Week 2007, lead to the U.S. Senate (S.Res. 580) and the U.S. Department of Agriculture officially declaring the 2008 celebration, according to the Pollinator Partnership.
You can help spread the pro-pollinator message by planning your own National Pollinator Week event in your state. Find more information at www.pollinator.org
