Urban Pollinator Corridors: Creating Native Habitat to Support Pollinators and Other Wild Life
Portland is the largest urban area in Maine and many of the region’s native plants and the fauna that depend on them have been replaced with buildings, paving, and exotic plant species. Creating a vision for restoring native habitat was the goal of the Portland Pollinator Vision Plan, a joint project between Wild Seed Project and the Conway School of Landscape Design. Engaging citizens, grassroots organizations, and public officials to take the bold steps needed when most people can’t even imagine what a habitat corridor would look like requires lots of education and the ability to inspire the multiple actions needed to create connected plantings stretching across the landscape from the healthy wild habitats and farmland of rural areas into the heavily developed city and suburbs.
