Special Lighting of the Empire State Building to Promote Pollinators

By National Gardening Association, June 22, 2017

This morning in New York City, to help promote the Million Pollinator Garden Challenge, the National Wildlife Federation and the Pollinator Partnership were present at the ceremonial lighting of the Empire State Building. If you are in the New York area tonight at around 8:30pm, be sure to cast your gaze up and admire the yellow and black stripes on this landmark building! 

Daymond John, beekeeper and celebrity co-host of Shark Tank, flipped the switch that sets the lighting for tonight in motion!
