As designated by the U.S. Congress, National Pollinator Week will be observed June 18-24, 2018. This year, Bee City USA®-Decatur, GA (a.k.a. "Beecatur") will mark the week with Decatur's first city-wide celebration of the event. The theme selected by Beecatur's members is (drum roll please!): "Bee At Home in Decatur."
According to Peter Helfrich, chair of the Beecatur committee, “We felt the theme reflected the idea of bees being an important part of our community of homes, schools and places of worship. The art and poster for this year’s celebration tie in to that relationship as well.”
Beecatur's celebration plans include workshops, talks, and other special programming designed to inform the public of the critical role bees and other diverse pollinator species play in Georgia, across our country, and worldwide. Beecatur is now reaching out to members of the Decatur business community to discuss how they can participate.
We're excited to share Bee City USA - Decatur GA's 2018 National Pollinator Week theme and logo:
