Kelowna Nectar Trail

Summary
Purpose/Mission: 
Participants in the Kelowna Nectar Trail commit to: Plant and care for a minimum one-square meter bed of flowers. Choose drought-tolerant, pesticide-free flowers that bloom from spring to fall. Leave bare spots for wild bees to dig and nest in. Put up a sign that tells your neighbours what you’re doing! At the present time, I am a neighbourhood participant with my garden, but for next spring I also hope to make some type of contribution through my art, with sales of prints from my Messenger series of miniature paintings.
Start/End Date: 
Sunday, 1 September, 2019

This project was started in the spring of 2017, with leadership from Nancy Holmes from UBC Okanagan. Private homes and businesses throughout Kelowna  signed on to support wild pollinators by planting and maintaining gardens with pollinator-friendly flowers to help wild bees and other pollinators move safely through the urban landscape. In 2019 Border Free Bees (BFB) and Kelowna Museums also hosted workshops to help people become Travelling Bee Ambassadors.
