What is Bee Campus USA?

Bee Campus USA is a program created by Xerces Society as an extension of Bee City USA. Bee Campus USA attempts to promote awareness for all pollinators: bees, butterflies, bats, birds, etc. It helps campuses establish a safe, healthy environment for pollinators to be able to feed and pollinate the plants they need to survive.
