Bee City USA

The City of Florence is Committed to Protecting Local Pollinators

The City of Florence was designated as a Bee City USA affiliate after the City council members approved a resolution in 2019. Florence joins only four other communities and campuses in the state as Bee City affiliates.

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.
