For May’s chapter meeting, we will take a virtual road trip to visit pollinator habitats funded by the chapter’s Native Pollinator Habitat Grant Program. You will hear from projects at three sites: FJH Outdoor Classroom at Friendswood Junior High School, Pollinator Habitat in the Discovery Garden at Carbide Park, and Cornelius Re-Spark Park at Cornelius Elementary School. Grantees will highlight their successes, obstacles, and lessons learned.

About the Sites

Cornelius Re-Spark Park at Cornelius Elementary School (Houston ISD): Cornelius was one of the first five schools in Houston to receive a SPARK Park back 1983 and has benefited from a few re-SPARK efforts. This initiative by the Cornelius PTO is creating a native pollinator garden at JP Cornelius Elementary, enriching the learning environment for students while supporting local wildlife.

Outdoor Classroom at Friendswood Junior High (Friendswood ISD): Friendswood Junior High’s project aimed to create an engaging and educational native pollinator garden, fostering a connection between students and the environment.

Pollinator Habitat in the Discovery Garden (Carbide Park): The project led by the Galveston County Master Gardeners at Carbide Park is centered on enhancing a pollinator habitat within the Discovery Garden. This initiative not only provides essential support to local pollinators but also offers valuable learning opportunities for visitors.
