Protecting Pollinators Through Community Collaboration

By: Edmonton and Area Land Trust

The Edmonton and Area Land Trust (EALT) is the only nature conservancy dedicated to preserving and restoring natural areas and rural landscapes throughout the greater Edmonton region. They work for public benefit and education to conserve our natural heritage, protect biodiversity, benefit wildlife and their habitat, maintain natural areas’ economic, health, and community benefits, and enhance the quality of life for residents and families. EALT’s Protecting Pollinators through Community Collaboration project accomplished a great deal to counter the ongoing problem of pollinator decline. Its focus on bee hotels provided inspiration and practical actions to enable the public to conserve pollinators.
