Melissa Elliott presents the Eugene City Council and Mayor Piercy with the Melissa Bee Good Award, For Making Life Sweeter for Bees. The Council voted to ban the use of neonicotinoid pesticides on City property this spring, becoming the first municipality in the United States to do so. Eugene has set the gold standard for land stewardship and honeybee and pollinator protection. May cities and towns across the United States and world follow their example!
