The Pollinator Community Art Project directly supports the Township of King’s Bee City Certification and Mayors Monarch Pledge actionable goals. Municipalities participating the Mayors Monarch Pledge are required to complete a minimum of three actions annually from the National NWF list of 24 actions for municipalities.
One of the actions King has committed to implement for 2022 involves creating the Pollinator Community Art Project. The project aims to engage residents and promote monarch and pollinator conservation as well as cultural awareness and recognition.
