Pollinator Paradise: An Urban Habitat Project
Polinator Paradise is a Corvallis Urban Pollinator Habitat demonstration garden that aims to educate the public about plants to use as well as land management practices that protect pollinators and enhance their survival and well-being. The project will provide plant lists, garden design suggestions, and advice on creating pollinator habitats as well as non-toxic management tips.
The design of gardens and management of our landscapes in the Northwest can contribute to the health of bees, butterflies, and other insects. Homeowners, gardeners, landscape professionals, and volunteer groups can all work together to attract a wide range of pollinators to their properties while practicing sustainable landscaping.
