I enjoyed the article by Stephanie Rico on Protecting Honeybees and Their Fragile Ecosystem. I Chair the Oakland Landscape Committee in Oakland California, and have been working in multiple Oakland public gardens/parks in the last few years in adding more pollinator and native plants to support bees and other pollinators. We added approximately 3000 plants last year, and hope to continue this effort in 2014 and 2015 in multiple sites. We have involved crews of at-risk youth in the County of Alameda Probation Department in regular Saturday workdays in our efforts to add pollinator plants and to support threatened bee populations.We have also been working on encouraging growers of plants to cut down or eliminate use of some pesticides that can impact bees.
We hope to partner with Wells Fargo and Wells Fargo Green Teams on expanding pollinator habitat in the near future. Great focus area for your environmental efforts! Would like to communicate with Stephanie/others at Wells Fargo.
