Norcross families can join in the celebration of National Pollinator Week, June 22 through 28, by picking up free pollination-themed activity workbooks and seed packets in front of City Hall, 65 Lawrenceville St., or by downloading a print-at-home version at www.norcrossga.net/CivicAlerts.aspx?AID=771.
Pollinator Week, observed the third week in June each year, was created to address a declining bee, butterfly, bird, bat and beetle population, to spread awareness on how to protect them, and to promote their value in the ecosystem.
Norcross residents can register their own gardens to receive a “Norcross Pollinator-Friendly Garden” sign, which families can start with the wildflower seed packet included with the workbook.
Norcross is also launching an all-new subsite devoted to sustainability on the city website: www.norcrossga.net/sustainability featuring information on the city’s initiatives as a Platinum Green Community by the Atlanta Regional Commission, as well as tips and resources for how citizens and businesses can do their part.
“As a Platinum Green Community, Tree City and Bee City, we are strong supporters of sustainability here in Norcross,” stated the city’s mayor, Craig Newton. “That extends to our sustainment of pollinators. The importance of these creatures to our environment is undeniable, and we hope that through these new resources we can reach and educate a larger segment of the community.”
