Orillia

Our 28th Bee City is taking action to support pollinators!

Located in the heart of Ontario’s Lake Country on the shores of Lake Couchiching and Lake Simcoe, the City of Orillia currently has more than 70 annual and perennial gardens and 2 community gardens with pollinator species planted throughout. In addition, 2 butterfly gardens have been planted with species to attract butterflies and bees specifically and the City has more than 140 flowering hanging baskets located in the downtown.

Moving forward, new designs and construction projects will promote the creation of new gardens in parks, recreation centres, parking lots, and other public spaces with the intent to improve pollinator habitats.
