BEES AND TREES

Cheerios and Nature Valley are celebrating Earth Day this year by partnering together to do good by supporting initiatives that help bees and trees.

Nature Valley supports the trees.

Nature Valley is proudly supporting The Nature Conservancy by helping to plant 100,0000 trees around the US. The trees will be planted at two different sites within the Plant a Billion Trees program. One is LongLeaf Pine, these trees are planted within the Southeastern U.S. (Georgia, Florida, North & South Carolina) and the other is Upper Great Lakes which is Wisconsin, Michigan, and Montana. Longleaf plants in the fall and Upper Great Lakes plants in the spring, so all the trees will have been planted by summer 2020.

Cheerios continues its commitment to help the bees.

Last year, Cheerios planted 1.7 billion seeds of pollinator plants and we’re doing more. By 2021 our oat farms will host about 3,300 acres of nectar- and pollen-rich wildflowers, which are full of the nutrients bees and other pollinators need to stay strong. Working with the Xerces Society, we have already made amazing headway by engaging dozens of oat farmers with active work to get more habitat planted on their farms.

This work is literally changing the landscape for bees in some of the major oat growing regions of the north-central United States and central Canada. Learn More
