Pollinator Project

Pollinator Project

 

This project will expand on our current “It’s A Bug’s Life” in-class education program which has been delivered in School District 42 since 2013. This highly popular program brings pollinator education to elementary school children.

ARMS intends to create community education opportunities about beekeeping and the importance of pollinators through a series of weekend workshops, enhance our current pollinator education program by upgrading our teaching materials and beekeeping resources, and increase pollinator habitat by planting a large meadow or beds of pollinator-attracting, BC native plants onsite at our interpretive centre in Maple Ridge.

Our aim is to increase the number of participants in our “It’s A Bug’s Life” school program in 2018, pollinator habitat, expand local knowledge of pollinator issues, beekeeping skills, citizen science opportunities.
