Populations of bees and other pollinators are declining around the world including in the St. Croix Valley. More than 75% of our flowering plants and nearly 75% or our crops depend on bees, butterflies, birds, bats, beetles, and other pollinators, making these animals critical to our economy, food security, and environmental health.
The National Park Service has created a webpage where you can learn more about pollinators and how important they are on Earth. You can also download a paper about pollinators.

Over 50 organizations have signed the pledge so far. Your organization can take the pledge to help inspire actions across public and private lands and help the St. Croix Valley become a better habitat for pollinators.
