The City of Niagara Falls will officially be designated a Bee City on Friday, June 15, during a ceremony at Fairview Cemetery, where more than 10,000 pollinator plants have been recently installed at a newly developed green burial section.

Niagara Falls will be the 13th city in Canada to become a Bee City — a North American movement to support and protect bees and other pollinators by establishing and maintaining pollinator habitats within the municipality.

All are invited to attend the event, at which attendees will hear from Shelly Candel, director of Bee City Canada, and Renee Delaney, owner from Small Scale Farms, to learn about the importance of bees and their effect on our environment.

Falls mayor Jim Diodati will also be in attendance to accept the designation from Bee City Canada.

WHAT:  Niagara Falls Bee City designtion ceremony
WHERE: Fairview Cemetery, 4501 Stanley Ave.
