Pollinator Gardens in Arvada

We want to hear about pollinator gardens in your community!

Pollinators are needed for almost everything, from the food you eat, medicines, your home or even the clothes you wear. And some pollinators, like the Monarch Butterfly, have declined in population--Monarch populations are down over 90% since 1997! So the City of Arvada's Majestic View Nature Center is looking to find pollinator gardens, and gaps, to support struggling pollinator populations. Knowing where pollinator gardens are, and where they aren't, can help the City focus pollinator conservation efforts effectively for future planning.

Pollinator gardens are rich in native and regionally appropriate flowering plants, which are great for Colorado pollinators. Birds, bats, beetles and other insects, like the Monarch Butterfly, use pollinator gardens to rest during migrations, eat and refuel, and even lay eggs or rear their young.

So do you have a garden that attracts lots of pollinators? Or do you know of a garden or open space that has native and regionally appropriate plants? Share your garden stories, pin a garden on the map, and read more about the City’s efforts for pollinators as part of the Mayors Monarch Pledge.

The Majestic View Nature Center and the Parks Department will take your feedback into consideration when assessing where to locate future parks and urban design projects, as well as share your feedback with other City teams and City Council in the Mayor's Monarch Pledge Report.

Please share your input with us before the project closes on Nov. 6. We are excited to hear from you!
