Portland Pollinator Partnership


Portland Pollinator Partnership is hosted by the Bayside Neighborhood Association, a nonprofit community advocacy group. Wild bees and other insects are as crucial to maintaining our flowers, vegetables, and plants as traditional honeybees.  Planting appropriate pollinator and insect-friendly vegetation has many benefits to Portland’s ecology. Formed in April, 2014, we seek to partner with other Portland area residents, businesses, and  organizations. We hope you will join us in exploring ways to enhance our natural environment for the benefit of all. Learn more here.
