The mission of the Friends of the Pollinator Meadow is to maintain a space dedicated to the preservation and protection of native pollinators.
- Join us on Saturday, September 12 at 2:00 pm for or our Opening Party, featuring a talk by renowned bee expert Dr. Robert Gegear! You are welcome to experience the garden, have refreshments, and ask us questions about gardening for Pollinators.
- Join us for weekly “Weeding Bees” every Tuesday evening, weather permitting. See the meadow and its artwork, meet Maynard neighbors and friends, and spot native pollinators buzzing through! Special thanks to Maynard Eagle Scouts for their hard work clearing invasive plants and helping with meadow maintenance.
- Renowned native bee expert Dr. Robert Gegear recently visited the meadow and made recommendations for plantings & identified some very cool native bumblebees in the garden. Check out one of his citizen science projects at beecology.org, where people can record and locate native bee pictures!
Since the Pollinator Meadow shares property with ArtSpace, we felt it would be important to have art in the Meadow. Many thanks to the contributing artists:
