Livingston Loves Bees!

On another note, Livingston continues their "No Mow May" tradition. As a Bee City USA® affiliate, the city is joining with other cities and campuses nationwide to improve their landscapes for pollinators. Montana is home to several hundred species of bees and pollinators, including the rare Western bumblebee, which lives within the city limits. However, research shows significant declines in population size, with up to 40% of the pollinators at risk of extinction in coming years due to environmental stressors. Planting native wildflowers and plants helps foster a healthy home for the bees, but if that isn't possible, not mowing your lawn is an easy, cost-effective way to feed the bees!
