    The dome of the Rhode Island Statehouse is going to be lit up like a bumblebee.

    The Audubon Society of Rhode Island is working with the state to raise awareness of the importance of protecting pollinators.

    The dome will be illuminated in black and yellow Monday night. It'll look that way each night throughout the week for "National Pollinator Week."

    The Audubon Society says the striped dome will "bee" hard to miss. It's the first time they've done this.
