Pollinator Gardens Around Town

Consultation has concluded.

Pollinators are essential to the wellbeing of our community and we want to support them

Pollinators like birds, bats, beetles, and insects are necessary for almost everything you need for a good quality of life, from the food you eat, medicines, your home, or even the clothes you wear. Pollinator gardens are rich in native and regionally appropriate flowering plants, and pollinators use gardens to rest during migrations, eat and refuel, and even lay eggs or rear their young. 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 support pollinator gardens and conservation efforts.

Share with us where pollinator gardens are in Arvada, and what they mean to you

Using feedback provided by the public in 2021, the Majestic View Nature Center and the Parks Department have begun to cultivate additional monarch and pollinator garden patches in pollinator food gaps along Arvada's open spaces.

Now, we’d like to see how our pollinator corridors have grown in 2022, add significant changes from 2021, update our data (for example, has a pollinator garden changed in size?), and help increase interest in pollinator gardens across Arvada. 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? We want you to share more of your garden stories, pin a garden on the map, and read more about the City’s 2021 efforts for pollinators as part of the Mayors Monarch Pledge. Even if you participated in our past Speak Up project, we encourage you to add any new data or update significant changes to pins you’ve added in the past.

For participants excited to tour pollinator gardens, visit the Nature Center's website for more details and save the date for our Pollinator Garden Tour on Saturday, June 18 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.
