Celebrate National Pollinator Week June 19-25 With Free Fresh Energy Webinar

Ten years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of a week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. Pollinator Week has now grown into an international celebration of the valuable ecosystem services provided by bees, birds, butterflies, bats and beetles.

The Pollinator Partnership is proud to announce that June 19-25, 2017 has been designated National Pollinator Week by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of the Interior.

Secretary Jewell Offers Vision for Balanced, Prosperous Energy Future

Today, Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior, Sally Jewell, released a brief public statement and a 5-minute recap of highlights from a speech she presented yesterday at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) that was, in her words, “ . . . about a vision for a bright, balanced energy future for the United States. The U.S. needs to lead the world on energy, climate change and conservation, which is why I laid out a plan for smart energy reforms at the Interior Department over the next two years. This plan will help provide businesses with certainty, spur technical innovation and lead to cleaner, safer energy development — all while ensuring that we protect America’s public lands and waters for future generations.”
