Bee City USA
City of Florence Officially Becomes a Bee City in 2019
Florence is officially a bee city. City council members approved a resolution, designating the city as a Bee City USA affiliate. Florence joins Lake City and Greenwood as the only bee cities in the state.
The Bee City USA program endorses a set of commitments, defined in a resolution, for creating sustainable habitats for pollinators, which are vital to feeding the planet. Incorporated cities, towns, counties and communities across America are invited to make these commitments and become certified as a Bee City USA affiliate.
It goes on to say, “Being a Bee City USA affiliate also provides accountability for achieving pollinator conservation results each year, to be shared with one another and the public through annual reporting.”
