The Pollinator Pathway is designed to help create a friendly habitat for pollinating insects and animals and the native plants who count on them. Throughout a mile long stretch on both sides of Seattle's Columbia Street in Seattle, standard twelve foot wide planting strips (typically a grass covered area between the sidewalk and curb) will be transformed into pollinator friendly gardens, offering viable food and habitat to these vitally important insects and hummingbirds.
Thanks to the generosity of the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods and the labor of dozens of volunteers, a demonstration Pathway garden is in place at 27th Avenue and East Columbia Street. Landscaping plans and plant selections for the entire Pathway have also been completed.
Additional funding and labor donations are being sought to complete the rest of the plantings along the Pathway.
