Bees and butterflies have a banquet of flowering plants at their disposal now that the BC Wildlife Park and Rotary District 5060 have opened a pollinator garden, which is the park’s newest addition.
More than 50 volunteers from Rotary clubs throughout northwest Washington and B.C. were at the east Kamloops park last week, donating their time to complete the garden ahead of a dedication ceremony.
Multiple groups donated time and money in creating the garden, which will help support the environment. Two horticulture students from Thompson Rivers University transformed the area outside the discovery centre building, removing the gravel and preparing the soil beds.
