Pollinator Project

Our branch is thrilled to announce that we have received generous grant support from the Kimberley and Area Community District Foundation for the Marysville Eco Park Pollinator Project. 

NEW: Join us on Sunday, July 25th for the Loving our Pollinators Workshop, co-hosted by Moody Bee! Space is limited.

The City of Kimberley is providing upgrades this summer to Marysville main street and Marysville Falls trail. With the Eco Park located directly across the street, the timing could not be better to give the park some much needed TLC. 

What to expect over the summer months:

  • new picnic benches
  • a range of native plant and flower species planted to attract pollinators
  • new signage to learn about pollinators, the specific plants we have grown, and our organization
  • clean up/pruning back of existing vegetation to open up walkways and improve aesthetics
  • pollinator houses installed such as bat and bee boxes

Stay tuned to our Facebook and Instagram accounts for pictures of our improvements to the park, and to get a closer look at the changes, come and visit the park this summer.

Thank you again to the Kimberley and Area Community District Foundation for your support of our efforts to give pollinators a place to thrive! A big thanks also goes out to Nupku Native Plant Nursery, the Ktunaxa Nation, and Moody Bee for collaborating with us on this project.
