Will there be a Bee City USA in little old Talent Oregon?
November 29, 2013
Pollinator Project of Rogue Valley member Dolly Warden makes the news for her work organizing for Talent to become a Bee City USA. In the Medford Mail Tribune, Warden said:
"I think it would be absolutely wonderful for this little tiny town to be one of the first ones in the United States to become a bee city." She added, "We are already a tree city."
Bee City USA encourages city leaders to raise awareness of the contributions that bees and other pollinators make to the world. The group wants to foster practices that will help pollinators by setting standards in resolutions.
Bee City is a grassroots-meets-city-government organization that ups the standards for pollinator care.
