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. Check out the links below to help you plant your own pollinator garden!
Grants are not guaranteed to be available every year, but if you are interested in being notified about future grant opportunities or pollinator pathway-related programs, fill out the interest form by following the link on the image to the right!
