Media Borough Council unanimously voted on April 17th, 2022 to become a Bee City USA®, joining many other cities and campuses across the country united in improving their landscapes for pollinators. Borough Council's action is the culmination of months of effort by Transition Town Media and its Protecting Biodiversity Group.
Bee City USA is an initiative of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, a nonprofit organization based in Portland, Oregon, with offices across the country. Bee City USA’s mission is to galvanize communities to sustain pollinators by providing them with healthy habitat, rich in a variety of native plants and free of insecticides. Pollinators like bumble bees, sweat bees, mason bees, honey bees, butterflies, moths, beetles, flies, hummingbirds, and many others are responsible for the reproduction of almost ninety percent of the world's flowering plant species and one in every three bites of food we consume.
