Pollinator species have declined in numbers, become endangered, and even gone extinct due to the loss of natural food supplies and habitat. Pollinators are not only an essential for our food production, but they support healthy ecosystems. By helping create and restore pollinator habitats along with educating others of their importance, great strides can be made in their recovery.
Pleasant Grove Pollinator Park
During the 2008 flood, 48 homes in the Pleasant Grove area were damaged and then purchased by the city using a FEMA grant and later demolished. The grant required the land remain green space and not be developed. Interest has risen in the community for this land to become a pollinator park and join the Parks and Recreation Department as it’s 24th park! We are currently waiting on FEMA approval for the design and a fundraising campaign will kickoff soon.
