Each year, Ontario Nature’s Youth Council organizes conservation volunteering events across Ontario. To align with the pollinator campaign in the spring and summer of 2018, Youth Council members hosted 9 pollinator habitat creation events in communities across Ontario in partnership with local groups.

We are grateful to our partners and the 269 volunteers who helped make these events successful. They planted more than 1,500 native wildflowers, shrubs and trees to benefit wild pollinators.

“The pollinator friendly planting I was a part of this past May gave me a sense of stewardship and made me feel as though I was making a real impact on the world. I am glad that I was able to be a part of the event.” – Jacob, Our Special Spaces Peterborough

“I love being able to plant things where I can come back and see it all time!”  – 8 year old, Our Special Spaces Kitchener (Gzowski Park)
