Ridgewood is proud to be New Jersey’s first Bee City USA, and celebrate National Pollinators Week!
Bee City USA is a relatively new organization that is similar to the “Tree City” program; only it focuses on bees instead of trees.
Bee City USA is a nonprofit national organization that galvanizes communities to sustain pollinators–responsible for 1 in 3 bites we eat and the reproduction of 90% of the world’s wild plant species–by providing pollinators with healthy habitat, rich in a variety of native plants and free to nearly free of pesticides.
Bee City USA, Ridgewood aims to protect pollinators by:
- Raise awareness
- Enhance habitats
- Celebrate achievements
- Institutionalize Ridgewood’s commitment to establishing and maintaining healthy pollinator habitats
