St. Anthony Pollinator Pathway

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 2021 the city partnered with St. Anthony-New Brighton Community Services to host a free class on how to create a pollinator garden. The presentations inlcuded Gardening for Pollinators by Sarah Kickert from Southview Design and Native Plants for Pollinator Gardens by Thea Evans from the U of M Bee Lab.

In 2019 the city adopted a resolution to Endorse Pollinator Protection and Promote Pollinator Habitat.

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.
