June 22-28, 2020 is National Pollinator Week.

About 75% of all flowering plant species need animal pollinators for reproduction. Pollinators are integral to healthy ecosystems. Celebrate them this #pollinatorweek!

The Plant Conservation Alliance (PCA) is proud to collaborate with Pollinator Partnership<https://www.pollinator.org/> and the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign (NAPPC)<https://www.pollinator.org/nappc> partners to encourage the health of pollinators in North America.

#nativeseed creates resilient ecosystems for pollinators when we put the right seed, in the right place, at the right time!

Working collaboratively to solve the problems of native plant conservation and native habitat restoration, PCA member agencies<https://www.blm.gov/programs/natural-resources/native-plant-communities/national-seed-strategy/pca> and nonfederal cooperators<http://www.plantconservationalliance.org/cooperators> benefits pollinators too! The 2015 National Seed Strategy for Rehabilitation and Restoration<https://www.blm.gov/programs/natural-resources/native-plant-communities/national-seed-strategy> to address widespread shortages of native seed and ensure the sustainability of ecosystems in the United States. PCA partners have recently been active in helping to identify pollinator-friendly native plant species as high priority for seed production.
