    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    Despite their small size, pollinating species such as bumblebees and hummingbirds have a major impact on the environment.

    “Approximately 90 per cent of the world’s flowering plants depend on pollinators to reproduce, representing the crucial role pollinating species pay in maintaining our environment,” said Janice Thomson, chairwoman of the Niagara Parks Commission.

    Niagara Parks on Friday unveiled a new pollinator garden at Legends on the Niagara golf complex.

    The small garden will form part of Niagara Parks’ newly created pollinator garden route along the Niagara Parkway.

    From the Niagara Falls Review:

    There’s probably no better place to teach children about birds, wildflowers and trees than by taking them on a hike in the Niagara Glen.

    “It’s all about raising an awareness for nature and the environment and hopefully our youth will do what they can to protect it,” said Bruce Macdonald, founding president of the Friends of the Niagara Parks – Niagara Glen Group.

    On Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., the Friends of Niagara Glen, held their second annual Earth Day at the Glen. They were set up near the top of the access stairs and were joined by a number of other organizations including the Niagara Parks Commission, the Niagara Parks Police, the Niagara Falls Nature Club, Ontario Access Coalition, Leave No Trace and Scouts Canada. All had displays and representatives on hand to answer questions.
