Pollinator Week, an initiative of Pollinator Partnership, is celebrated June 20-26 this year. According to Pollinator Partnership, this annual dedication to pollinators is to recognize and promote the “valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats, beetles, moths, wasps, and flies.”

Pollinator health is a growing concern among consumers, and homeowners are often looking for ways to support pollinators in their landscapes. Landscape companies can use Pollinator Week—and the weeks leading up to it—to promote pollinator-friendly practices as well as other sustainable practices.

Several resources are available suggesting pollinator-friendly plants. It’s best to make plant selections that are either native to Colorado or have been shown to work well in this climate. Check and the Colorado Native Plant Society for recommendations. Also, Pollinator Partnership offers Ecoregional Planting Guides.
