Town of Blind River

Blind River’s outdoor spaces speak for themselves. We are host to endless trails enveloped by biodiversity.  When we create recreation spaces, we ensure they complement rather than impede.

Our local volunteer groups ensure flower beds are planted and naturalized spaces remain in tact.  Local residents share valuable insight that can educate and shift thinking patterns.  This ensures our community makes changes without official governance—ultimately, this ensures buy-in, and comradery. 

Becoming a Bee City is more than creating spaces for the bees, it is about ensuring our community members and guests respect both flora and fauna in their daily decision making.

Our school is shaped by a strong ecological mindset and a commitment to be good stewards of creation. We see gardening and caring for pollinators as a life enriching practice that we are happy to share with our students, their families and the local community. Being a Bee City School celebrates the relationship between our community and the natural world.

Augusta Township is very excited to become the 40th municipality in Canada to join the Bee City Program. We recognize that increasing opportunities for pollinators will make our community more colourful, vibrant, sustainable, and both agriculturally and economically productive. Agriculture has been a pillar of our local economy for more than two centuries, and pollinator promotion programs will help ensure that agriculture remains strong in Augusta for generations to come.

Teaching our students about biodiversity loss is extremely important at our school. We strongly feel that highlighting how bees are struggling nowadays is a perfect way to help our students understand that their actions can be instrumental in not only curbing the decline but helping to reverse it.

It is important to us to become a Bee City School as we are located in a rural setting and many of our students recognize the impact that society and agricultural practices have had on pollination. They also put in practice horticultural methods that will support the needs of bees, which will in turn, improve the environment for essential pollination. Our students are well informed and passionate about making positive change. Joining this campaign along with other local schools shows a great commitment to the cause.
