Over the years, the city and residents have been increasingly concerned over a decrease in native pollinators. To combat these losses, it is our goal to increase natural habitat creating the Saint Anthony Pollinator Pathway.
In 2018, the city received a grant from Hennepin County to add pollinator plantings to public, residential, institutional or commercial properties. With the grant we helped to install 32 new gardens (5 which also function as rain gardens). Each garden is made up of a variety of native plants that bloom for different times from April through October.
If you are interested in creating your own pollinator garden, we have provided some resources below.
