Founded by Thomas and Ruth Roy the national day was designed to draw attention to the importance of bees in our eco system and to the dangers they currently face.
They encourage people to plant herbs and flowers that attract bees, reduce the use of harmful pesticides and generally think about creating bee friendly gardens – http://www.dates.abouttravelingtheworld.com/special-holidays/dont-step-on-a-bee-day/
