The week of June 21-27 is Pollinator Week in the Town of Carrboro, as proclaimed by Mayor Lydia Lavelle.
“I encourage all Carrboro residents to reflect upon the vital role that pollinators play in sustaining our natural environment and join in the efforts to create pollinator-friendly habitats,” Mayor Lavelle said.
In October 2014, Carrboro became the third municipality recognized as a BEE CITY USA; and, in doing so, agreed to meet the standards required of all BEE CITY USA affiliates, including annual celebration of National Pollinator Week or other appropriate occasion through events, proclamations, and promotions that showcase the Town’s commitment to being a BEE CITY USA.
The Town has worked to create pollinator habitat by installing native bee nest boxes, establishing a pollinator garden, and planting pollinator-friendly vegetation to restore a riparian buffer.
Learn more about how we can join together to promote healthy, sustainable habitats for bees and other pollinators.
