The City of Grande Prairie’s commitment to being a Bee City realizes the goals the community set ten years ago of “we are a beautiful and sustainable community that provides an exceptional quality of life to its residents and is the core of a prosperous and dynamic region. Our residents are connected to the environment and are aware of the environmental impact of their decision. Our parks and open spaces enhance the quality of life for all.” The focus of naturalization, edible landscaping and sustainable practices creates a community of awareness of their surroundings.
Being a Bee City to us means connecting more with schools, community groups and other municipalities on their pollinator initiatives. Bringing the community back to its roots through growing their own food and showing what they can grow in their own backyard, patio or windowsill.
