Celebrating Pollinators

Since 2010, Pollinator Week has been a time to recognize the importance of pollinators and the impact they have on our environment, and more importantly, on our way of life. The USDA Forest Service is heavily involved in supporting pollinators in the way we manage our lands to act as habitat for these invaluable creatures, and in promoting their health and resilience.  Honeybees are the most prolific animal pollinator—but pollinators range from insects like butterflies, wasps and ants, to mammals like bats, and even birds. Click on the following links to learn more about the fascinating world of pollinators.
