PCC is Bee Campus Certified - part of the early adopters of the program and one of the first colleges to become certified to work together to conserve native pollinators by increasing the abundance of native plants, providing habitat, and reducing the use of pesticides. Students and employees work together to carry out these commitments and make their campus a better place for pollinators.
