Beecatur 2018 Holiday Gift Guide
Give A Gift That Keeps On Giving!
This holiday season, give a gift that grows! For a donation of $15, $25 or $50 (or more), Beecatur will install a pollinator-friendly native plant, shrub or tree in one of Decatur’s dedicated pollinator habitats. It's the perfect gift for teachers, co-workers, aunts, uncles, etc.! In recognition of your gift, the recipient’s name will be posted at the habitat site and online. On planting day, they will even receive a photo of their plant being installed. Help nourish and support our city's vital pollinator species without spending a lot of green! One size fits all bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and more! To learn more about the Gifts That Grow program, or to purchase a gift, visit Beecatur’s website: www.beecaturga.com/giftsthatgrow
