Ann Arbor, Bee City, Creates a Pollinator Sub-Committee

. March 31, 2018.

Ann Arbor, affectionately known as Tree Town, is also a Bee City, one of 69 across the U.S. that have committed to welcoming the pollinators. Ann Arbor’s Environmental Commission recently created a Pollinator Sub-Committee comprised of nonprofit, government, University of Michigan, and citizen representatives who are working together to plant pollinator-friendly species around the city and to eliminate the use of neonicotinoids, chemicals sprayed on lawns and ornamental plants that are toxic to pollinators. As 90% of all plants reproduce through pollination, and one in three bites of the food we eat is created thanks to pollination, helping bees and butterflies is great “pollincy”!
