Pollinators are critical to the Nation’s economy, food security, and environmental health. Pollination is a tremendously valuable service provided by bees, butterflies, birds, and other creatures. However, pollinators are struggling; bee colonies have declined significantly and Monarch butterflies are in jeopardy. Increasing the quantity and quality of habitat for pollinators is a crucial step towards rebuilding their populations. 

Anyone can help pollinators by planting a pollinator garden or thinking carefully before applying any pesticides. The City of Santa Clara is excited to join this effort by re-landscaping a piece of land on Central Park Library grounds into a Demonstration Garden. The garden will showcase pollinator-friendly California Native plants, drought-tolerant plants, and sustainable gardening practices.The garden will also feature the use of mulch and compost working together to create a resilient garden that provides wildlife habitat, enhanced aesthetics, and the efficient use of resources. 

The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony will take place on June 21st at 11:00 a.m. Please contact Environmental Programs staff at environment@santaclaraca.gov for more information.
