Bees, birds, butterflies, beetles, and even bats are all keystone species that form the center of a critical ecosystem: pollination. An estimated 1/3 of all foods and beverages we consume—and nearly $20 billion worth of products annually—depend on pollinators. These species also support terrestrial wildlife, provide healthy watersheds, and perform dozens of other essential roles in maintaining our delicate ecosystem.

National Pollinator Week is the perfect time to celebrate and spread awareness about these valuable species, and to take action to save them. Check out and share the latest news, facts, and events happening in your area, to help raise awareness among consumers about how crucial pollinators are to our food system.
