Georgina: Proud Bee City Designation

Buzzing with commitment to pollinators

Georgina is honored to be recognized as the 85th Bee City by pollinator.org. This prestigious designation highlights the community's dedication to protecting and supporting pollinators, vital contributors to the ecosystem and food supply.

Why pollinators matter

Pollinators, including bees, butterflies, birds and other insects, play a crucial role in the reproduction of flowering plants, including many of the fruits, vegetables and nuts that humans rely on for nutrition. Without pollinators, the food system would suffer, and ecosystems would be greatly disrupted.

Together, let's protect pollinators

The Town is committed to being a leader in pollinator conservation, and with the community’s support, it can ensure a thriving environment for both pollinators and people. Join the Town in its efforts to protect and celebrate these essential creatures that contribute so much to the world.
