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¬†
