75th Bee City USA
Winston-Salem is honored to be an affiliate of Bee City USA.
Bee City USA fosters ongoing dialogue in urban areas to raise awareness of the role pollinators play in our communities and what each of us can do to provide them with healthy habitat.
National Pollinator Week June 17 -23, 2019
Bee City USA signs will be installed at Quarry Park, Washington Park (Gateway Nature Preserve), and Historic Bethabara Park.
On June 22, 2019, from 8:00 – 11:00 a.m., the city will hold an event at the Winston-Salem Fairgrounds Farmers Market to celebrate pollinators with honey sales, an observation hive, and children's activities.
The Operations Department has created an ArcGIS Story Map that focuses on projects occurring at the parks mentioned above as well as the Keep Winston-Salem Beautiful Flower Bed Program and city-maintained flower beds.
