Native pollinator populations throughout the world have been experiencing critical threats to their survival with issues ranging from food insecurity to habitat loss. Considering the critical role pollinators play in our surrounding ecosystem, CSU has made a commitment to make our campus more welcoming to these essential creatures.
The Fall 2017 addition of the Clark A Pollinator Bed kicked off an agenda here at CSU to create more intentional spaces on campus, designed to support pollinators by providing consistent food sources and safe spaces for nesting. The flowerbed provides pollinator-attracting plants such as catmint, agastache blue boa, lavender, primrose, spirea, and beebalm. Along with flowers, it supports signage to educate the campus community about pollinators.
