Bee City USA

The Charter Township of Ypsilanti began the exciting journey toward our Bee City USA designation when the Township Board voted unanimously to certify Resolution 2015-14 on May 19, 2015 in support of our Bee City USA designation application.


Ypsilanti Township takes very seriously the commitment of creating sustainable habitats for native pollinators, which are vital to feeding the planet, and was delighted to receive the first Bee City USA Designation in the State of Michigan on June 22, 2015! Since our certification, we are happy to hear that four other locations in Michigan have been designated as a Bee City/Campus – the City of Ypsilanti (2015), the City of Ann Arbor (2016), the Campus of University of Michigan-Dearborn (2019) and the Campus of Washtenaw Community College (2019).


Ypsilanti Township has taken the requirements of the Bee City USA designation one step further by starting our very own apiaries, which are located at the Tilden R. Stumbo Civic Center and the Green Oaks Golf Course. We have also planted wildflowers at the Civic Center to encourage bee pollination in the area.


The Charter Township of Ypsilanti is thrilled to continue this exciting journey working to protect our very essential pollinators!
