Save the Bees, Please!
Last week, First Lady Michelle Obama finished planting her sixth-annual White House Kitchen Garden. This year, she did something different. She planted a pollinator garden to attract and support 70,000 bees already gracing the presidential lawn, as well as monarch butterflies and other pollinators. ‘
It’s great that the First Lady is doing her part to create a habitat for bees at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. But what we really need is a ban on the toxic pesticides and herbicides that are responsible for killing off huge populations of honeybees. And Mrs. Obama is in a great position to help us achieve that.
Please ask First Lady Michelle Obama to set an example for the nation by urging the Obama Administration and Congress to support H.R. 2692, the Saving America’s Pollinators Act.
