Pollinator Story: USDA Forest Service

The U.S. Forest Service manages 193 million acres of public lands for native plants and pollinators, research on pollinating species, restoration of habitat post-fire, and public-friendly outreach materials print and online, including the Celebrating Wildflowers website, Pollinator-Friendly Ecoregional Planting Guides, Bumble Bees of the Eastern and Western United States books, Bee Basics book, and Attracting Pollinators to Your Garden brochures (co-produced with Pollinator Partnership), and the Conservation and Management of Monarch Butterflies manual. USDA released the Pollinators Under Pressure and Farms Under Pressure short films. The first Pollinator Week was proclaimed in 2007 by the Secretary of Agriculture, and has been re-designated every year since.
