Protecting the Pollinators that Inhabit our Garden
Chihuly Garden and Glass has joined The Million Pollinator Garden Challenge. What’s that you ask?
Organized by the National Pollinator Garden Network, The Million Pollinator Garden Challenge is anational campaign to preserve and create gardens and landscapes that protect bees, butterflies and other pollinators. Pollinating animals and insects are important to gardens as they sustain plant reproduction.
Although Chihuly Garden and Glass is located in the heart of Seattle, a wide variety of wildlife depend on our garden. So many, in fact, that we are a certified wildlife habitat through the National Wildlife Federation. Northern Saw-Whet owls, honeybees, squirrels, hawks, Ruby-Throated and Anna’s
Hummingbirds can all be found inhabiting the garden. Bees enjoy our Sea Holly, Verbena and Hardy Geraniums while the hummingbirds often seek our Honeysuckle vine and Mahonia plantings. Sometimes you may even catch a few very artsy American Robins in our Pacific Sun installation.
So, next time you visit, keep an eye out for the pollinators and wildlife that thrive here.
