Pollinator Week Activities

It's not too early to start thinking about your socially distant activity. Pollinators positively affect all our lives, supporting wildlife, healthy watershed and more - let's SAVE and CELEBRATE them!

My Pollinators My Story Submissions are now on the map! We are asking gardeners to report on how their pollinator gardens are doing and to show us the pollinators they are attracting. Are your plants growing and blooming? Are pollinators showing up – which ones, and when? What does the action in the garden look like? Let us know by submitting your story!

SAVE THE DATE for the Pollinator Power Party

Pollinator Partnership is very excited to be collaborating with EPRI and co-hosting the virtual Pollinator Power Party 2021 on Monday, June 21 through Saturday, June 26.

Celebrando a Nuestros Polinizadores (CNP) nace en el 2018 como un evento de divulgación dirigido al público en general. A nivel global, El CNP se articula a la iniciativa “Semana de los Polinizadores” promovida por Pollinator Partnership organización estadounidense sin ánimo de lucro. El CNP tiene como propósito crear y mantener un espacio de divulgación científica sobre el trabajo de diferentes actores de la sociedad relacionados con el manejo, estudio y conservación de la polinización. Así, este evento convoca a meliponicultores, apicultores, investigadores y a diferentes actores de la sociedad civil para compartir e intercambiar conocimientos relacionados con los polinizadores y el servicio de la polinización en México. Hasta la fecha, el CNP ha tenido tres versiones: dos presenciales (2018 y 2019) y una virtual (2020).

Este año, el Celebrando a Nuestros Polinizadores (CNP) tiene como meta resaltar el trabajo de las mujeres en el manejo, promoción y estudio de los diferentes aspectos (científicos, económicos, nutricionales y socio-culturales) que dependen de la polinización, en el marco de los retos ambientales y sociales de Latinoamérica. Para ello, el CNP-2021 creará un espacio para conocer las experiencias de mujeres que trabajan, desde diferentes contextos, para diseñar e implementar estrategias que permitan mitigar los efectos de la actual “Crisis de la polinización”.

Join Kelly Allsup, University of Illinois Extension Horticulture Educator, to learn about swallowtail butterflies just ahead of National Pollinator Week.

A recent study tracking butterfly abundance in Ohio over the last 20 years has discovered a 33% decline. We can only assume that in Illinois we have similar patterns in decline in our butterfly populations. Scientists believe the decline may be attributed to climate change, habitat degradation, and agricultural practices.

We know we have to plant milkweed for monarchs but what about the other 149 butterfly species in Illinois. With this presentation, Kelly will tell you what plants need to be put in your garden to help 6 species of swallowtail butterfly caterpillars. She will also describe their life cycle and how to identify them. If you plant certain plants, you can increase the swallowtail butterfly habitat in your own garden. Kelly wants you to grow parsley for Black Swallowtail caterpillars.

This week Indiana Dunes National Park celebrates Pollinator Week! Stop by the Paul H Douglas Center for Environmental Education each day this week to learn about pollinators from park scientists and rangers. Indiana Dunes is home to hundreds of pollinator species, including butterflies, bees, and flies (Oh my!), and we have many interesting projects devoted to protecting these amazing creatures and teaching visitors about the important role they play in keeping our park beautiful.

At Indiana Dunes, we are doing what we can to protect native pollinator species—But the work does not have to end with us! This Pollinator Week, stop by the Paul H. Douglas Center for Environmental Education this week to learn about why pollinators are so important and what you can do to protect them!

Designing a native garden can be made easier, more successful and wonderfully rewarding by incorporating key features and applying sound conservation practices. We'll begin our presentation by learning about the essential elements of a pollinator garden with Karl Ackerman of Wild Ones Gibson Woods Chapter, who will provide an overview of what makes a native garden thrive for you, your environment and your local pollinators.

Next, we'll learn about Shirley Heinze Land Trust's Bringing Nature Home program from Eric Bird. Did you know that roads, utility corridors, agricultural land, and residential neighborhoods are all potential barriers to the movement of animals, and the plants they depend on? Native plants in any of these settings can provide safe passage between areas of natural habitat for important pollinators and seed dispersers. This means that your garden makes a difference! Native plants provide food and shelter for birds, butterflies, and other pollinators. Learn how you can support healthy natural ecosystems during this informative presentation.

The Pollinator BioBlitz is a communal citizen-science effort to record as many pollinators as possible in during Pollinator Week! How it works: If you can find a pollinator and take a picture of it, you can participate as a BioBlitz observer! Download the iNaturalist app on your mobile device, head outside, and snap as many photos of pollinators as possible including bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, hummingbirds, bats, wasps, flies, and more! Then, upload your photos to the iNaturalist app and share your observations. Go solo or BioBlitz with friends and family. Either way, you’ll love being a citizen scientist!

Calling all chalk enthusiasts! All ages are invited to come chalk the sidewalk at the Bee Branch Creek Greenway in celebration of Pollinator Week! We want to cover the sidewalk with bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, hummingbirds, bats, flowering plants, food crops, and all things pollinator-related! Why? Pollinators provide pollination services to over 180,000 different plant species and more than 1,200 crops. That means that 1 out of every 3 bites of food you eat is there because of pollinators. In addition to the food that we eat, pollinators support healthy ecosystems that clean the air, stabilize soils, protect from severe weather, and support other wildlife. A limited supply of chalk will be provided. People are welcome to bring their own chalk and tools. Everyone who participates will get their own sidewalk square and be entered into a drawing to win punch cards to the City of Dubuque pools! No registration is required. This event is being held in conjunction with the 6th Annual Summer Sustainability Fair.

Hello from Boulder City Nevada! We're the little town that built the Hoover Dam, rich in history, traditions, landscapes & gardens. We're proud to be clean & green and we love our pollinators!

For Pollinator Week, we'll be creating 'The Pollinator Path of Boulder City'. Each resident can participate by featuring their yard or garden with plants, flowers or trees that support pollinators and in turn receive a really cool 'Pollinator Stop' sign and a spot on our 'Pollinator Path' map.

We're kicking off the celebration by organizing and preparing seed kits, signs and materials for participants. Then during Pollinator Week, the community can cruise throughout town, seeing the beauty and hard work of our pollinators at homes, gardens, parks and landscapes.
Everyone is encouraged to join in daily activities such as scavenger hunts, evening lightings of pollinator supporter lights, seed exchanges and special focus on particular pollinators with fun facts and more!

Headquartered at the Boulder City Community Gardens, 300 Railroad Ave, daily activities and event materials will be available to pick up.

Many of you are already creating pollinator habitats — in backyards, agricultural fields, and public natural spaces; in rural areas and urban centers; and on private and public lands. Together, through all these efforts, great and small, we ensure that annual migrations continue across North America. During Pollinator Week, register your pollinator habitat with Journey North.

You may think that your habitat is just one pollinator patch – but together we are creating a patchwork quilt of connected habitats for the species we track through Journey North.

Help us to show the whole “quilt” by participating in our Pollinator Patch mapping effort.

We look forward to connecting with you!

National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them.

Fourteen years ago the U.S. Senate, initiated by Pollinator Partnership under Laurie Davies Adams, unanimously approved and designated a week in June as “National Pollinator Week”, marking a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. That same year, Secretary of Agriculture Mike Johans issued a proclamation that Dr. Larry Stritch, US FS Chief Botanist for Grasslands, orchestrated. Pollinator Week has now grown into an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.

Pollinator Week was initiated and is managed by Pollinator Partnership.

Join award winning author and pollinator conservationist, Heather Holm, for a free online presentation on Monday, June 21st at 7:00pm EDT. Her talk will be on Native Predatory Wasps: Their Role as Pollinators and Beneficial Insects. Register at https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/2021-pollinator-week-heather-holm-tickets-148405772661.

Native bees and predatory wasps share the same lineage and also share many behaviors and habitat requirements. Predatory wasps feed their offspring invertebrates (insects and spiders) and bees diverged from this carnivorous diet to feed their offspring plant-based food (pollen and nectar). Flower-rich landscapes provide critical habitat for both adult bees and wasps because they each consume flower nectar; in addition, wasps need diverse, flower-rich landscapes to hunt for their prey. Heather will highlight many amazing natural history and biology facts about native wasps illustrating their nesting habitat, prey specificity, and the ecosystems services they provide—pest insect population control and pollination.

This presentation will not be recorded. Participants can join online or by phone. A link will be sent to you a few days prior to the event.

Demand for solar energy continues to accelerate - can this benefit beekeepers? Who’s doing it and how does it work? In the United States, farmers and other landowners have signed leases for more than 500,000 acres of new ground-mounted solar projects by the end of 2024, with up to 10 million more acres by 2050. Some of these projects are seeded with acres of diverse ground cover including clovers and other flowering species. With a virtual tour showing successful projects, this online event will introduce beekeepers to the increasingly common land use of large-scale solar farms, as well as a model contract created by the Food and Beverage Law Clinic at Pace University’s Elisabeth Hub School of Law, for beekeepers exploring solar farm apiary agreements.
