Not to be outdone by nearby Talent and Ashland, Pheonix organizers got busy as bees to complete their application and adopt their resolution to become a certified Bee City USA community. Like their neighbors, Phoenix is active in the Pollinator Project Rogue Valley. Sharon Schmidt, known for organizing the Oregon Honey Festival in Phoenix, won endorsements from the Parks and Recreation Department, the Native Plant Society, the Garden Club and others.
Congratulations to all! We look forward to what Phoenix has to teach us about establishing healthy habitats for bees and butterflies.
