The 2023 Eugene Christmas Bird Count (ECBC) is on Sunday, December 31, 2023. Yes, this…
Oregon’s gardens, agricultural lands, high deserts, natural areas, and forests are home to roughly 600 species of bees, so it’s not surprising that Oregon is a national leader in bee research. Special license plates honoring and supporting bees and pollinator research will soon go into production. In the new-themed license plate, a honeybee hovers above hives and a native bumble bee visits a pink clover flower.
Marek Stanton created the art for this plate. At age 16, he is the youngest member of the Oregon State University Extension Service’s Master Melittologist program and a lifelong artist. Your purchase of a Pollinator Paradise license plate will help safeguard bees now and into the future. You can sign up to receive an email notification when the plates become available. (Please do not contact the DMV.)
