Puyallup Festival of Books
Bee City USA
Community outreach and information-sharing is a large part of Puyallup’s Bee City USA designation. In furthering this objective, a display has been created at the Puyallup Public Library to highlight not only our bees, but crucial lesser-known pollinators, and ways for the community to become involved in conserving these important creatures! Community members can view ways to create pollinator-friendly gardens and habitats, the current pollinator endangered species list, local businesses offering safe bee removal, and learn about better pest management options. Handouts and resource lists are available at the library front desk. Take a moment to check out the display for yourself – it will be up through the rest of October!
