Celebrate National Pollinator Week!

From mypubliclands:

For National Pollinator Week, we’re sharing great photos of the birds and the bees and more! This Tiger Swallowtail butterfly was spotted in the BLM-managed Water Canyon Recreation Area right outside Winnemucca, Nevada by Gretchen Westhoff.

You can also visit Explore.org’s Honey Bee Hive on the two Live Cams.

Did You Know? “Seven years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of a week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations.  Pollinator Week has now grown to be an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.” Learn more here!
