Pollination Station

Pollination Station

In Pacific Spirit Regional Park, we’ve turned an overgrown, weedy slope into a meadow of wildflowers for local pollinators. This was all made possible with the funds raised during the REEL Earth Day Challenge back in April.
 
Not only for bees and other pollinators, this project will improve water quality, and increase carbon sequestration by planting local, deeper rooting plants.
 
While there are no guarantees that the flowers will bloom this year (it depends on the weather), by next year, the revitalized meadow will be a beautiful place to visit and reconnect with nature.
 
Looking for tips on starting your own pollinator meadow?
 
Here’s what was planted:
Mountain Bromegrass: Bromus marginatus
Slender Wheatgrass: Elymus trachycaulus
Blue Flax: Linum lewsii
Woolley Sunflower/ Oregon Sunshine: Eriophyllum lanatum
Pearly Everlasting: Anaphalis margaritacea
Farewell to Spring: Clarkia amoena
Henderson’s Shooting star: Dodcatheon hendersonii
