Decatur’s Bee City USA program accepting donations for pollinator-friendly plantsDana Wertz leads off the Beecatur Krewe marching in the 2018 Mead Rd. Mardi Gras parade. Don't get stung by them, but check them out.
Throughout the holiday season, the Bee City USA program in Decatur (also known as “Beecatur”) will offer a “Gifts that Grow” program.
Through the program, Beecatur will install one pollinator-friendly native plant, shrub or tree in one of Decatur’s dedicated pollinator habitats for each donation of donation of $15, $25 or $50.
“Help nourish and support our city’s pollinator species without spending a lot of green,” the city said in a newsletter.
For anyone who donates, the recipient’s name will be posted at the habitat site and online. On planting day, they will also receive a photo of their plant being installed.
