The town is currently working towards certification as a Bee City USA affiliate, to raise awareness of the role pollinators play in our communities and what each of us can do to provide them with healthy habitat. There are currently 85 designated Bee Cities in the country, 18 of which are in North Carolina.
One of the requirements for becoming a Bee City is to have a Committee appointed to guide the efforts to raise awareness and improve habitat for pollinators in Apex. We're currently accepting interest formsfor the town's first Bee City committee.
This five-member committee will be comprised of citizens with experience/interest in pollinators or native plants that support them.
Once established, this Committee will work to complete the requirements to apply for Bee City designation and ensure that application is submitted. They will also work to develop programs, web based information, and printed information to raise awareness of the importance of pollinators and their habitats.
