Corvallis Urban Pollinator Habitat Project

Corvallis Urban Pollinator Habitat Project

Project Description

The Corvallis Urban Pollinator Habitat project demonstration garden is intended to educate the public on plants to use, and land management practices that not only protect pollinators but enhance their survival and well-being. The project will provide detailed plant lists, garden design suggestions, and advice on creating pollinator habitats. Once plants are in the ground, landowners can learn to keep them healthy without exposing pollinating insects to pesticides that are toxic to them.

Garden design and the way we manage our landscapes in the Northwest can help promote the health of bees, butterflies, and other insects and provide many other ecological benefits. Homeowners, gardeners, landscape professionals, and volunteer groups all can work to attract a wide range of pollinators to their properties and practice sustainable landscaping.
