The Hamilton Pollinator Paradise Project (a partnership with Environment Hamilton and Hamilton Naturalists' Club) is planting a paradise for pollinators across Hamilton by creating habitat with native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. Together with our community, we are working to strengthen and enhance Hamilton's unique biodiversity.
The project also shares information and resources about why pollinators are in trouble and what other actions people can take. By creating connected habitats across the City we will also be increasing the resiliency of our neighbourhoods.
To reach our goal, we focus on city-wide community engagement and education, as well as seeking to inform policy, locally, provincially and federally. Mapping the project's "pollinator sites" is ongoing and as the map gets filled in, it demonstrates that the community is contributing by creating pollinator habitats. We are also furthering awareness and participation to improve biodiversity in the city, including the Hamilton Monarch Awards to demonstrate appreciation for gardening for the benefit of nature.
