King Township is the Ninth Bee City in Canada!
The goal of the Bee City Canada certification is to provide and promote healthy, sustainable habitats for bees and other pollinator species. Bees and other pollinators around the globe have experienced declines due to a combination of environmental factors that have serious implications for the future health of flora and fauna. Bee City Canada encourages municipalities and their residents to support bees and other pollinators on both public and private land by fostering environmental awareness around this issue.
The Township of King is commitment to helping pollinators! King Township is enhancing existing and creating new habitats for pollinators in parks, gardens and naturalized areas. Designating the Township of King as a Bee City will demonstrate the Township's commitment towards increasing pollinator awareness, protection and conservation. Becoming recognized as a Bee City will further contribute to the Integrated Community Sustainability Plan. Bee City Certification will reinforce the goals of the King's Integrated Community Sustainability Plan by fostering community engagement and education and supporting healthy ecosystems and food sources.
