Dear Pollinator Action Team (P.A.T.),
Three years ago the U.S. Senate’s unanimous approval and designation of the final week in June as “National Pollinator Week” marked a necessary step toward addressing the urgent issue of declining pollinator populations. In 2010 we can continue to build on the tremendous success of this movement.
I am requesting your support in helping to protect pollinating animals, by:
· Creating pollinator events in your area! Events range from nature walks, a pollinated foods potluck, pollinator fundraiser, etc. E-mail Sunny Boyd at firstname.lastname@example.org with your event details for posting on http://www.pollinator.org/pollinator_week_2010.htm.
· Writing your state governor requesting declaration of your own state Pollinator Week, June 21-27, 2010. To date, 7 proclamations have been issued; and another 2 are on the way!
With your help, we hope to reach 100% state participation this year. Many states require that one of their citizens request that events such as Pollinator Week be officially proclaimed. In 2009, 36 states officially declared Pollinator Week! Please take a moment to sign and mail the letter available at http://www.pollinator.org/pollinator_week_2010.htm to your governor. Your effort will help make Pollinator Week 2010 a great success!
