BC’s 3rd Bee City!

On April 2, 2019 the District of Clearwater was declared as Canada’s 24th Bee City and BC’s 3rd Bee City!
What does that mean? This is a great honour and opportunity for Clearwater to create healthy pollinator habitats, educate the community about pollinators, and celebrate pollinators in many ways.  “The District of Clearwater is very excited about this designation and has many plans for creating a healthy pollinator habitat, some examples are: supporting the Bee City Working groups initiatives, adopt a “pesticide free” policy for District properties and encourage citizens to do the same and planting pollinator friendly plants in our community parks.”  Lucy Taylor, Councillor.

T’it’q’et is the first First Nation to join the Bee City family and the second community in British Columbia!

Located along the Fraser River, the community of the P’egp’ig’lha People have already brought great wisdom to Bee City. As a requirement of adopting the resolutions they have determined that youth members must be part of their Bee City team and, in fact, they are leading the charge.

Kamloops Declared First Bee City in British Columbia

The motion was brought forward to Kamloops City Council by Lisa Strachan with Tourism Kamloops and supported by Glenn Grant, the executive director of the B.C. Wildlife Park and co-chair of Communities in Bloom. As the second Western Canadian affiliate of Bee City, Kamloops has created a lot of excitement with neighbouring communities and has already brought creative, fresh ideas to the program.
