Quadra Cedar Hill Community Association’s Climate Action group has been working on a pollinator initiative over the past couple of years, beginning with a pollinator walk and talk. This was followed by three events, supported by UVic students from a Geography 380 class, who helped teach us how to use Open Green Map to indicate where pollinator-friendly plants and trees were in our neighbourhood, ideally indigenous ones as they support the pollinators that live in or pass through our area.
Special thanks to the students in the Spring 2023 class – Lindsay Worden, Jordan Monahan, Keith Buckley and Estela Majano – who created and gave us this excellent tutorial and other support materials!!! Also, very special thanks to Maleea Acker and Ken Josephson who teach this amazing Community Mapping course!!
