The best way for kids to learn about the natural ecosystem is to explore it hands-on. They’ll have that opportunity now at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland’s Broadway Club. There the volunteers not only beautified the location by cleaning up a debris-filled unused courtyard, but created a new pollinator garden to attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds.
“This beautiful new space gives us a great opportunity to show our kids the life cycles of both the plants and pollinators, and reinforce that bugs are good for the ecosystem,” said BGCC’s director of program operations Renata Fossen Brown. “It’s going to be really fun to watch the garden change through the seasons and see it fill out as everything grows.”
The garden includes such bee and butterfly attractors as Joe-Pey weed, bee balm and coneflowers. It will be officially unveiled at a reception on Fri 10/28.
