"Making the world safer for pollinators, one city at a time."
That's the mission of Bee City USA. It's a national effort to focus attention on the importance of honeybees to our ecosystem and to agriculture.
Berlin says Ypsilanti already has a number of initiatives in place that show the city's support for pollinators.
"It really starts with raising awareness," Berlin says of her projects, "to give people the opportunity to experience bees. To experience not being afraid. To experience that connection that we all have with the environment that we live in."
