Nine years ago the U.S. Senate unanimously approved the designation of a week in June as National Pollinator Week. This year’s National Pollinator Week is June 20-26. Supporters dedicate the week to building awareness and celebrating the valuable ecosystem services provided by various pollinators including bees, birds, butterflies, bats, and beetles.
