Happy World Bee Day!

Bumblebee with visible pollen sac on Large-leaf lupine (Lupinus polyphyllus) in Clackamas County.

No matter where you live, consider supporting our native pollinators by:

1) planting a variety of native plants to your area with a variety of bloom times February through November
2) leaving the leaves (providing a brush pile if you are able)
3) refraining from pesticide use

I highly recommend checking out valuable information located at Beesponsible--their website and Instagram feed contains many beautiful pollinator photos and a robust collection of information. Their movement and advocacy for our native pollinators inspires me every day! On World Bee Day, I want to not only recognize the important work they do, but encourage you to sign up for their newsletter and choose one thing YOU can do to support our bees.
