Happy National Pollinator’s Week!

Bee_Charles_06_08_14_Compressed
Did you know that this week is National Pollinator’s Week? Pollinators are the bees, butterflies, and other creatures which help us get the fruit, vegetables, and flowers that we all love! In order to help local pollinators thrive, the Bronx River Alliance has been planting native species which provide food for bees throughout the growing season.


Alliance Crew Members have created several bio-swales as a water management system in the Bronx using native flowers and grasses. Last year, we planted, Dwarf Crested Iris, Autumn Bride Coral Bells, Small Headed Sunflower, and much more in Shoelace Park near 224th Street. Since then, local pollinators have made a ‘bee-line’ for these rain gardens and more instillations are on the way!
