Bee-ing a Good Neighbor

 

​Do you eat chocolate, drink coffee, or enjoy tomatoes?  If you do, then you pol 4.jpgdepend on the daily activities of bees, bats, butterflies and other animals that pollinate our food.  In fact, one in every three bites of food that humans eat depends on healthy pollinators. Further, many ecological webs are connected to the health of pollinator species, such as healthy vegetative communities that stabilize soil, support water filtration, and produce seeds for other wildlife. The serious declines in pollinator populations are causing global alarm for financial, health, and cultural reasons.

In recognition of the importance of pollinators around the world, Exelon Generation took time to recognize National Pollinator Week which ran from June 18-24th.  National Pollinator Week is a time to celebrate pollinators and spread the word about what you can do to protect them.

On June 14th, members of the James A. FitzPatrick Environmental Stewardship Committee began creating their own Pollinator Garden on plant grounds. Committee members and volunteers completed the planting of over 700 pollinator plugs consisting of 12 different native species! Later that week, FitzPatrick and Nine Mile Point employees released two dozen Painted Lady butterflies at the garden.

At FitzPatrick we are thinking about pollinators and hope that you will also.
