Bee City

Pollinator Week

June 17 - 23

This annual event, managed by the Pollinator Partnership and supported by Bee City Canada, is all about raising awareness and protecting the pollinators in our community, including bees, butterflies, moths, bats, beetles, and hummingbirds.

The 2024 theme for Pollinator Week is “Vision 2040: Thriving ecosystems, economies, and agriculture.” This year, we are encouraged to imagine a future where our pollinators don't just survive but thrive, contributing to healthy ecosystems and vibrant communities.

Learn more with the Bee City Pollinator Event Guide and Pollinator Partnership Activities and Bioblitz.

The Town of Whitchurch-Stouffville is now the 80th Bee City! Bee City is an organization that promotes protecting and supporting pollinators, particularly bees, across Canada.
Bee City Canada advocates for policies and practices that promote pollinator health and biodiversity conservation. It aims to create sustainable habitats for pollinators and raise awareness of the importance of bees in the ecosystem.

How to Participate:
Register your community clean-up. By registering, you'll receive essential supplies from us—gloves and garbage bags—to help keep our town tidy. Plus, we’ll organize a pick-up of the garbage collected after your clean-up effort.

Clean-Up Dates:
Check back here for April 2025 Community Clean-Ups  and registration dates!

Supplies Pick-Up:
Registered? Great! Pick up your garbage bags and gloves at our Earth Day Event, happening in April 2025 - check back here for updates. 

A Few Guidelines:

  • Location of Clean-Up: Avoid private properties, railways, roadways, and riverbanks. And remember, safety first—don’t clean up during bad weather.
  • Found Something Hazardous? If you encounter dangerous items like needles or broken glass, please contact the Leisure Centre for safe disposal.
  • Safety Tips: Supervise children closely and always wear gloves.
