In recognition of Earth Day, Snohomish PUD is providing free pollinator kits to area students in partnership with the Everett Public Library System, Sno-Isle Library and the Boys and Girls Club.
Starting this week, the Everett Public Library System will distribute 50 mason bee houses to the community via its website (www.epls.org). The Sno-Isle Library will distribute 30 butterfly feeders via its mobile library. The Boys and Girls Club of Snohomish County will receive 50 hummingbird feeders for students who utilize its facility.
“We are excited to share these kits with young people in our community this Earth Month,” said Laura Zorick, Communication and Marketing Representative. “The PUD is dedicated to working to preserve and enhance our natural surroundings. We hope that these kits help inspire young people to take steps in their own backyards to protect the pollinators that are so vital to the health and vibrancy of our natural environment.”
Each kit comes with instructions, necessary materials and background information on why the particular pollinator is important to our ecosystem. The kits are designed for students at a third or fourth-grade level.
The PUD has a team of dedicated employees who value our natural resources and strive to protect them. Our team works to promote waste reduction, energy efficiency and sound environmental practices during all daily activities. Click here to learn more about the PUD’s environmental commitment.
