Samy Santana, The Pollinator Pathway, California, USA

Without this grant, we could not have invited the science classes to document the effects month by month of converting planting areas from non-flowering shrubs to native flowering plants that support different important species of pollinators. The work funded by this grant helped me serve my community in three ways: 1) Physically changing the environment to support a healthier ecosystem; 2) Educating the community through signs on the purpose of this space, the need for pollinators, and our role in the ecosystem and; 3) Involving the science department on a longitudinal study between pollinators and the habitat. Each area has seating to invite people to interact with the space rather than just walking by
