Bee City USA began in Asheville, NC, and encourages city leaders to raise awareness about the contributions bees and other pollinators make in our world. The organization is encouraging all municipalities to foster practices to support our pollinators, including reduction or elimination of pesticides, and maintaining plantings and areas friendly to pollinators.
Thank you, Bee City USA!
