Pollinator Week is June 15-22, 2014
Did you know that planting for pollinators is one of the top gardening trends for 2014? Don’t miss the boat on caring for our pollinators this year and every year. Planting for bees is easy and gratifying. Check out lots of ideas for pollinator gardens here.
The Colorado State Beekeepers Association (CSBA), along with two of its regional associations, Boulder County Beekeepers Association (BCBA) and Northern Colorado Beekeepers Association (NCBA) is pleased to present Pollinator Week with special activities in the Northern CO and Boulder areas. This year, we have expanded our Pollinator Week presence to include nurseries and garden centers in the Denver Metro area.
Country Fair Garden Center at Colorado Blvd. – Denver
Nick’s Garden Center – Arvada
Tagawa Gardens – Centennial
Phelan Gardens – Colorado Springs
Rick’s Garden Center – Colorado Springs
This year’s message is simple: Plant for Pollinators, Eliminate Pesticides.
In conjunction with our sponsor, BBB Seed, we have put together a beautiful publication for member use in education and outreach efforts. Click here to view the publication. If you would like any of these, please contact Beth at 970-213-3099 or firstname.lastname@example.org with your name, address and quantity needed, and I will mail them to you. Brochures will also be available from your regional associations and at the Summer Meeting.
On Saturday, June 21 from 10-2, beekeepers will be at special Pollinator Week booths at participating nurseries to answer questions regarding bees and other pollinators. Participating nurseries are:
Fort Collins Nursery–Fort Collins
