Bringing Communities Together to Sustain Pollinators
Welcome to the Bee City USA & Bee Campus USA affiliate portal
Learn about conserving native pollinators, engage your community, and connect with other affiliates
Bee City USA® and Bee Campus USA work to galvanize communities to sustain pollinators, in particular the more than 3,600 species of native bees in this country, by increasing the abundance of native plants, providing nest sites, and reducing the use of pesticides. Bee City USA and Bee Campus USA are initiatives of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation.
Across the country, energized community members are partnering with parks, campuses, neighbors, and more to plant flowers and save bees. Creating habitat is vital to reversing pollinator declines, and it’s highly compatible with many public spaces. Just as important as providing flowers is making the commitment to protect pollinators from pesticides. Xerces has a variety of resources to help guide communities as they work to reduce or eliminate pesticide use.
While Norcross is experiencing chilly weather now, warm and sunny days will return in the spring. With warmer weather, the City of Norcross—a certified Bee City USA affiliate—will be open for pollination, welcoming migrating butterflies and birds, busy bees, beetles, and more to sites across the city, including pollinator gardens at three Norcross schools.
