Our pollinator populations are in decline. Honeybees, monarchs and other pollinators face significant challenges like habitat loss, pesticide use, disease and climate change. One way to help is through the planting of pollinator-friendly plants and the restoration of natural areas.
The Kulwicki Park Pollinator Habitat Project increases the quality, quantity and connectivity of pollinator habitats in our community by planting low-growing, native perennials in the ATC Utility Corridor along the south edge of Kulwicki Park. The habitat provides nectar, pollen and shelter that pollinators need to thrive and will help limit the growth of invasive species. The site is adjacent to the park’s bird feeding station and eBird Hotspot; creating additional opportunities for the public to engage with and learn about nature and biodiversity.
This project would not be possible without the support of our generous community partners, including American Transmission Co., Greenfield Beautification Committee, Wild Birds Unlimited and private donors.
