Bee City USA

Color Logo Charter Township of Ypsilanti A Community of Opportunity

Civic Center w Address

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 fight to stop the decline of our pollinators and was thrilled to receive the first Bee City USA Designation in the State of Michigan on June 23, 2015! We hope to lead the way and encourage other Michigan Townships to adopt these important policies and obtain their designation as well.


Ypsilanti Township has taken the requirements of the Bee City USA designation one step further and has taken action now by starting our very own apiaries, located at Huron River Park, Green Oaks Golf Course, and Fire Station #3. The apiary consists of ten hives and a watering hole. We will also be planting a sunflower meadow at the hives.


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