Check back in the fall for our 2022 call for proposals!

Are you concerned about pollinators and their habitat in Guelph and Wellington County?
Are you a community garden, school, faith community, health care facility, environmental group, academic/researcher, educator, neighbourhood group or other valued non-profit community member?

Want to make a difference for pollinators, the environment and the community?

At a time of accelerating climate change, pollinators and their habitat need our help more than ever!  This year, Pollination Guelph is funding local initiatives in support of our Goals and Objectives. The 2021 Program will provide grants of up to $1000.

Focus areas for 2021

The three areas of focus for funding in 2021 are:

  • Planting, enhancing and/or maintaining pollinator habitat. E.g. gardens, naturalization projects

  • Educating others about pollinators and pollinator habitat through a special event, activity or signage. E.g. during “Pollinator Week”, June 21 – 27, 2021

  • Conducting research at our habitat sites. E.g. surveying pollinator and/or plant species, investigating pollinator-friendly plants for different conditions, evaluating insect and plant interactions.
