LaSalle Environmental Action Committee Plants Pollinator Garden

 

​With the weather as mild as it was in the month of November, the members of LaSalle’s Environmental Action Committee held a dedication and seed planting ceremony at the station’s new 1,000-square foot pollinator garden. The garden will feature native plants designed to attract pollinators such as bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds. The seed mix was planted in accordance with Illinois Department of Natural Resources guidelines for pollinator gardens. 

Prior to the event, Environmental Action Committee members distributed 2-oz. honey bears from a local beekeeper to station employees to promote the importance of pollinator habitat restoration at LaSalle. The pollinator garden will serve as both a recreational and educational sanctuary and currently features a custom-made informational sign about native plant and pollinator species in the Illinois region and two benches made by Seneca High School Future Farmers of America (FFA).

Additional features will be added after the garden blooms next year.  The pollinator garden is LaSalle’s first project in a larger long-term habitat restoration initiative.
