Celebrate Ohio Pollinators

June 19-26, 2016

Pollinator Stewardship Council is collaborating with Ohio State Beekeepers Association and has developed a celebration of Ohio Pollinators as part of National Pollinator Week June 19-26, 2016.  Sponsored by an Ohio company, Scotts Miracle GRO, and featuring event partners the Cleveland Botanical Garden, Franklin Park Conservatory and Botanical Garden, and the Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm, it promises to be a week of celebration, education, and fun about honey bees and native pollinators.

AI Root repo-aiportraitWith Ohio being the historic home of the “father of modern beekeeping,” A.I. Root; and Bee Culture magazine; as well as “the father of American beekeeping,” Rev. Lorenzo Langstroth’s Cottage listed as a National Historic Landmark in Oxford, Ohio,  it is fitting that Ohio be at the forefront of celebrating pollinators. Learn more about the history of A.I. Root here.

Pollinator Stewardship Council is coordinating this Ohio Pollinator Celebration, working with Ohio State Beekeepers Association to increase awareness of the honey bee health crisis, improve the health of Ohio honey bees and native pollinators, and celebrate Ohio partners working together for Ohio agriculture, Ohio parks and forests, and Ohio backyard gardens.

Pollination plays a vital role in the health of Ohio’s forests and grasslands, which provide forage, fish and wildlife, timber, water, mineral resources, and recreational opportunities as well as enhanced economic development opportunities for communities.
