City of Guelph

19th Bee City stands out for its efforts to protect pollinators!

The City of Guelph’s official plan recognizes that maintaining pollinator habitat is essential for supporting healthy ecosystems and encourages this in City-led and private development projects. Guelph has also developed strong partnerships with numerous community groups, like Pollination Guelph, as well as schools and other organizations that are actively engaged in helping pollinators and protecting their habitats. The Hydro One Corridor Meadow Project, which recently transformed several acres of invasive, non-native buckthorn into meadow habitat, is one such initiative. We encourage you to review Guelph’s application to learn about other projects and future plans.
