Pollinators at Lakeside garden with Tora Rocha

August 10, 2013 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Lakeside Park Garden Center
666 Bellevue Avenue
Oakland, CA 94610
Please RSVP to

Come join us for a walk in the Lakeside Gardens to learn about what’s happening in the plant and pollinator world of Oakland… like the construction of this bee hotel!

Our walk leader will be Tora Rocha, parks supervisor for the city of Oakland and founder of the Pollinator Posse, a volunteer group that works to create pollination corridors as well as hand-rear butterflies to increase survival rates (and because it’s fun).

She’ll teach us about what’s going on behind-the-scenes to increase pollinator activity in Oakland through initiatives like creating pollination corridors, managing and creating habitat through projects like the Bee Hotel, and more!

You can also learn how to get involved with the Lakeside garden to help create more habitat and join the Pollinator Posse to raise and release your very own monarch, if you’re so inspired.

Meet in front of the Lakeside Park garden center at noon.

See you there!

    Sorry I won’t be able to attend and join the other Pollinator Posse regulars. I will be working with Probation Department Weekend Training Academy youth at the North Oakland Sports Field on Saturday on vegetation management to reduce fire risks. I’ve been busy trying to secure grant funding to work on adding pollinators plants to the 4 gardens that we work on, and hope to hear back in the next couple of months on the grant applications.
