Annual event recognizes bats and other vital species

Bats and other important pollinators were the stars of the show during Pollinator Week, which was held June 22–28, 2020. This year was the event’s 20th anniversary, though celebrations were a bit different than a typical year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Some communities held socially distant pollination celebrations, and many activities were virtual, which means the fun isn’t over.

The Pollinator Week website is up and running, offering fascinating facts about pollinators, fun kids’ activities—from building a bee condo to pollination-themed crossword puzzles—and even recipes like cranberry chocolate tart, which are based on pollinator-dependent ingredients.
