DeKalb County Is Buzzing About National Pollinators Week
Bees, bats, and other animals that perform the critical job of pollinating plants are in the spotlight this week. We observe National Pollinators Week by donning our beekeeping veil and joining Lynnea Laskowski as she takes care of her hives. She’s a volunteer beekeeper with DeKalb County Community Gardens -- she and her bees spoke with WNIJ's Susan Stephens.
You can get involved in National Pollinators Week by joining The Bee Blitz Saturday: people in Illinois, Ohio, and Missouri are asked to take photos of bees and upload them to beespotter.org.
And here are some remarkable photos of native American bees.
