Wellesley Township

Southern Ontario community becomes 20th Canadian Bee City.

Wellesley Township is pitching-in to help pollinators! A rehabilitation project led by The Friends of the Pond community group has been planting native trees, shrubs and flowering perennials on the riverside and areas adjacent to a pond near the centre of the town. In addition, a community pollinator garden was established in 2018 and filled with native plants. This garden area is being used to host workshops and other educational activities so that children, high school students and the broader community can learn more about how we can help our pollinators.
