Ontario Tech University
Over the course of 2022, Ontario Tech has planted 150 trees and continued to expand the existing pollinator gardens. The apiary was also upgraded to insulated bee boxes to help our honey bees continue to pollinate and produce honey. Similarly, Ontario Tech has continued to maintain the green roofs, bioswales, bat boxes and orchards – all of which support a variety of pollinator species.
Beyond the physical maintenance of pollinator spaces, the Pollinator Team has involved students, staff, and the community in tours of the apiary, planting opportunities, and in-school workshops.
