A part of the Garden's conservation efforts includes urban habitat restoration and the establishment of pollinator gardens and meadows within the City of Atlanta. Partners in this effort include the Conservation Fund, Park Pride, Trees Atlanta and the Greater Atlanta Pollinator Partnership (GAPP).
The Garden and its partners have installed seven pollinator gardens across the metropolitan Atlanta area, providing pockets of beauty and ecological resources for pollinators. This effort includes working closely with GAPP to provide straightforward, accessible resources for learning about pollinators and maintaining pollinator gardens to home gardeners, neighborhood associations and educators. Created to address the issue of pollinator decline, GAPP fosters grassroots support for pollinators in the face of significant challenges to their populations. Through this partnership, the Garden encourages Atlanta communities to take active steps to involve themselves in pollinator habitat conservation and restoration.
