New York Bee Sanctuary is developing ROADSEED ASSISTANCE, a methodology to help municipalities design and implement locally appropriate wildflower and pollinator-friendly plantings along roadways, parking lots, and other community areas. This will not only beautify public spaces, but also provide crucial and diverse forage for bees and wild pollinators.
Our goal is to make a network of wildflower roadways radiate from the sanctuary site—all over New York State and beyond. Watch this space in 2015 for future developments.
