Founder/director of Bee City USA® and Bee Campus USA, Phyllis Stiles was named the 2015 Pollinator Advocate for the United States by the North American Pollinator Protection Campaign. When she attended bee school in 2009, "they had her at hello." Ever since, her days have been filled with encouraging communities and campuses across America to create healthy habitat for all pollinators, rich in a diversity of native plant species and free of pesticides.
