Wilmington Named the 10th Bee City

In 2006, honey bee colonies started disappearing. Beekeepers became concerned because bees do more than make honey. They help produce many of our favorite foods. Eight-five percent of flowering plants and trees rely on pollinators for survival.

The Bee City USA certification is both an honor and a responsibility. The Bee City program endorses a set of commitments for creating sustainable habitats for pollinators, and encourages city leaders to raise awareness of the contribution bees and other pollinators make to our world.
