A bee buzz that is.
The Olympia City Council voted Tuesday night to join the Bee City USA movement to ensure healthy habitats for our fave pollinators.
Pollinators are popular in OlyTown. Mason bee homes and honey bee hives grace many properties around the city and residents proudly display signs proclaiming their environs as “Pollinator Friendly,” giving humble bumbles and their pals freedom to dart around gardens full of their beloved bloomers.
The city wants people to know more about how important these pollinators are to food production and how to keep them safe from pesticides, diseases and predators.
The city’s Parks, Arts and Recreation and Public Works departments will lead the effort, which will include the city taking a look at its own pest management policies and practices.
In these times, this is something to “Bee” happy about!
