September 28, 2021

Bee City USA and Bee Campus USA are initiatives of the Xerces Society. Thinking globally and acting locally, these programs provide a framework for communities to come together to conserve native pollinators by providing them with healthy habitat that is rich in a variety of native plants, provides nest sites, and is protected from pesticides. We are proud to partner with a network of over 250 cities, towns, and campuses working together to make their communities safe for pollinators, other animals, and people. Learn how you can make your community part of the Bee City USA network.
