The first Bee City in Manitoba
Brandon’s Bee City team has developed a comprehensive plan that brings together the City of Brandon and various community, conservation and non-governmental organization. A key first year objective will be to complete a city-wide pollinator habitat assessment, which will help to identify areas where habitat needs to be improved.
Bee City Brandon in its infancy has seen a positive impact engaging the community about native pollinators. In the fall we applied to be under Nature Manitoba’s umbrella, this will allow us to be able to apply to grants and create more partnerships and opportunities. We have been busy on social media and community presentations this past year, this has resulted in a few more members on our committee.
