On June 20 the Gettysburg Foundation, the Dwight David Eisenhower Society and the National Park Service held an event where they signed a pollinator resolution to support Operation Butterfly Wings, a large landscape conservation project. Operation Butterfly Wings is about the protection of the world’s precious pollinators using the monarch butterfly as a flagship species. We are very pleased that the Gettysburg Foundation and the Dwight David Eisenhower Society are co-sponsors of the pollinator resolution. More than 25 community  organizations had also signed pollinator pledges by the event date, which was during National Pollinator Week.

The Pollinator Pledge was signed on June 20, 2018. In attendance was (left to right) Zach Bolitho, GETT/EISE Acting Deputy Superintendent; Ahna Wilson, EISE Site Manager; Dr. Walton Jones, Dwight D. Eisenhower Society; Brian Shaffer, VP of Facilities, Gettysburg Foundation; Christopher E. Stein, GETT/EISE Acting Superintendent.
