WISCONSIN – Governor Tony Evers proclaimed June 21-27 Pollinator Week, and the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) encourages Wisconsinites to help pollinators by creating and maintaining habitat and monitoring bees and butterflies.
In his proclamation, Gov. Evers recognizes the importance of pollinators “to our environment, economy and collective well-being.”
Pollinators visit flowering plants and transfer pollen from flower to flower, allowing the plants to reproduce. Wisconsin’s native pollinators include bees, butterflies, moths, flower flies, beetles, wasps and hummingbirds.
