A Native Pollinator Meadow at Jackson Pond Preserve

The 4-acre native pollinator meadow at our Jackson Pond Preserve is celebrating its first official summer in bloom!

To plant a successful meadow, it takes a lot of preparation at the site, and after two years of planting, tilling, and cutting back by our stewardship team, the meadow has been released to grow. And has it ever grown!

This beautiful meadow will provide habitat for all aspects of a pollinator’s life cycle. Pollinator species (such as bees and butterflies) support nearly 40% of the world’s food crop production, and many of our vital pollinators are threatened with extinction. We’re happy to help boost pollinator populations locally.

PECO supported this native wildflower meadow initiative.

Come on our and see the meadow for yourself! We are hosting an event at the Jackson Pond Preserve meadow in September. Learn more by clicking here.
