World Bee Day on May 20 was a chance to hand out some wildflower seeds in Chilliwack to help the pollinators.
Rotary Club of Chilliwack president Shelley MacDonnell said Rotarians could be found in a few local parks and bus stops marking Bee Day.
“We handed out these tiny seed packs for Random Acts of Kindness Day, and again today on World Bee Day to help the pollinators of Chilliwack,” said MacDonnell.
“People are just joyful to get them, and we all need a little joy right now.”
The seed pack project was courtesy of the Rotary Club of Chilliwack, Ice River Springs, and PickEco Refills with some help from the City of Chilliwack.
“Sow some colour for you, the community and for pollinators by planting these wildflower seeds 3mm deep,” according to the instructions.
World Bee Day recognizes the life of Anton Janša, the pioneer of beekeeping, who was born in 1734.
The idea of Bee Day is acknowledging the crucial role that bees and other pollinators play in maintaining biodiversity.
