Help create connectivity for native plants and their pollinators.
Wildflowers for Pollinators: Citizen Science Meadowscaping Project (W4P) supports the conservation of native plants (wildflowers) and native pollinators (bees, butterflies), and addresses the continued loss of meadow habitat in the West Kootenay. Meadowscaping – the creation and enhancement of meadow habitat through a coordinated planting of native wildflower seeds – can result in direct conservation benefits. This program aims to create a variety of meadowscaped patches throughout the Kootenay Lake region, through the establishment of a wildflower seed library, citizen science training, the creation of stewardship partnerships and agreements, and one-on-one assistance with wildflower species selection, meadow site preparation, and planting.
Join us for W4P and actively contribute to science–focused and community-engaged conservation and get outside and connect with the land and nature that will have meaningful and enduring benefits for many beings!
