Back in 2015, Seattle was the eighth city in the nation to become a Bee City USA affiliate. Thanks to Bob Redmond, at the Common Acre, for sharing these photos from the Bee City USA–Seattle program where the City of Seattle and Central Co-op continue bringing advocates together to enhance pollinator habitat! Krista Conner and others at the Puget Sound Beekeepers are also working on habitat enhancements for wild bees along a major pedestrian/bicycle trail. Thanks to Seattle for all the pollinator love!
The Common Acre’s “Green Line” project has broken ground on one acre of bee habitat under the power lines in South Seattle. Bob Redmond’s son (the boy with the wheelbarrow) is already a conservationist!
