National Pollinator Week is June 19-25, 2023.
In 2006, the U.S. Senate unanimously passed a resolution designating a week in June as “National Pollinator Week.” According to Pollinator Partnership, this “marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations.”
Pollinator Week has now grown into an international celebration, promoting the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats, beetles, moths, wasps, and flies.
People across the planet have pledged to continue promoting pollinator health and well-being through their Pollinator Week events. These include virtual and in-person gatherings, webinars, planting sessions, garden and farm walks, and monument lightings.
