The Niagara Restoration Council in partnership with the City of Niagara Falls and the Park in the City Committee were able to plant a 1,000 square foot pollinator garden at Firemen’s Park back in 2015. Funding from this project derived from an AVIVA Community Grant - Blooms for Bees program. As part of the funding, two pollinator gardens will be planted in each of the 12 Niagara Region municipalities over the course of the 3 year project. Another pollinator garden is being planted in June of 2016 near the existing garden at Firemen’s Park. The Stamford Centre Volunteer Firemen’s Association and Saint Mary Catholic Elementary School will be participating in the next planting. These gardens will be planted with native wildflowers, mulched and maintained by the Niagara Restoration Council and will also include an educational sign.
