BEE PROGRAMS

'Bee' Part Of The Community

The Dunwoody Nature Center has several pollinator protection initiatives to help protect our local bees and inspire the love of nature in our community.

Bee Dunwoody
Pollinator Pledge & Garden Sign

Dunwoody joined more than 80 cities across the country as part of the Bee City USA program, a nationwide initiative to encourage healthy, sustainable habitats for bees and other pollinators.

The Bee Dunwoody Pledge
By taking the pledge, you promise to do your best to maintain your land to protect and promote the health of pollinators, including bees, butterflies, birds, etc. by caring for our local ecosystem.

Take the pledge and make a donation to receive a Bee Dunwoody Pollinator Garden Sign (pictured above).
