(Wicked Local Medford) Tufts University Medford-Somerville recently became the first urban educational institution in Massachusetts to be certified as an affiliate of the Bee Campus USA program. The university joins more than 200 other cities and campuses across the country united in improving their landscapes for pollinators. “In the same way that National Parks were a new idea in the early 1900′s, urban pollinator gardens are the next frontier for conserving insect diversity in the 21st century.”
