Asheville's Pollination Celebration!



Pollinator Week in Asheville!

2 0 1 5

June 11 - 21




Why Help Bees, Butterflies & Other Pollinators?


More than 80% of flowering plants species and one-third of our foods rely on animals for pollination.

Due to habitat loss, pesticides, diseases, and parasites, pollinators are in trouble, but you can help!

Plant a wide variety of native plants that bloom from spring to fall to supply essential nectar and pollen.

Avoid or minimize pesticide use.

Buy organic foods as much as possible.
