“One of every three bites of food we eat is dependent on pollinators, such as bees, butterflies and other critters, that play an enormous role in plant reproduction. Pollinators provide approximately $20 billion worth of pollination for American crops each year.”

Celebrate Pollinators Week on June 20 – 26 — attend an event, build habitat and admire your pollinatorsThank you to Pat McGovern, Manger of the Canillas Community Garden in Lebanon, for these beautiful pollinator photos.
