Pollinators Assemble!

The Phoenix Gardens.

Partnerships for Pollinators is a new community organization comprised of organizations such as UWEC, Eau Claire Area Master Gardeners, Beaver Creek Reserve and Citizen Science Center, and the Girl Scouts. Their goal is to build a “neighbor-to-neighbor network” in order to co-create and maintain a pollinator habitat. Environmental Civic Agency students are providing technical information to the community through creating educational materials (available on the UWEC website in late May), including written informational pieces and three YouTube videos. In addition to these materials, the Partnerships for Pollinators is hosting a planting event on Sunday, May 6. At this planting fiesta, various organizations and individuals will come together to plant a new pollinator habitat in Phoenix Gardens. There will be music, Toppers, and planting fun.
