The City of Irving is partnering with the National Wildlife Federation (NWF) to:
Bees are the best known pollinators. Others include butterflies, birds and hummingbirds.
Seventy-five percent of the crop plants grown worldwide for food, fiber, beverages, condiments, spices and medicines depend on pollinators. These agricultural products make a significant contribution to health and the economy.
Pollinators are essential to sustaining plants and wildlife, helping to restore the environment.
Through this conservation program and community initiative, the city will work with businesses, homeowner associations, neighborhood associations, residents and schools to conserve and protect the environment by creating more well-connected habitats that allow wildlife such as birds, bees and butterflies to continue to thrive.
