BEE CAMPUS USA
Washtenaw Community College
Washtenaw Community College values the importance of pollinators to the life cycle of flowers, plants, fruits and vegetable. Bees are the most important pollinators of fruits, vegetables, flowers, and crops like alfalfa and hay that feed our livestock. More than one third of the world’s crops are dependent on bee pollination. Bees are not intentional pollinators; Bees need to eat. They get all their protein from pollen and all their carbohydrate from nectar. They are flower feeders. To entice and nurture bees at WCC, the campus provides many bee friendly native flowers, a core garden, non-toxic fertilization and eradication techniques, as well as educational events about pollinators.
