To bee or not to bee

So you’re a fan of all those insects and animals that carry pollen from one plant to another? You can show your love for them on a new Virginia  ”Protect Pollinators” license plate that could be coming soon. The goal, says  plate developer Samantha Gallagher,  is to create some buzz for a statewide dialog about conserving the  creatures that make juicy red apples possible. For the plate to become available, Gallagher says,  the DMV needs 450 completed applications and plate fees by November. If enough applications come through,  state lawmakers must give their OK, and the DMV must approve a design. For more, contact Gallagher in Alexandria at 240 298-3570, or check out the pollinator plates website.
