The White Bear Lake Area Historical Society (WBLAHS) installed a pollinator garden October 1, 2022, at the Historic White Bear Town Hall site at Polar Lakes Park in White Bear Township. This was a joint project with the St. Paul Garden Club, Vadnais Lake Water Management Organization (VLAWMO), White Bear Township, WBLAHS, and area volunteers.
A pollinator garden is designed to contain native plants to provide food and shelter for bees, birds, butterflies, moths, wasps, bats, and small mammals that pollinate plants that support the local ecosystem and food web. The Historic White Bear Town Hall pollinator garden contains 14 different species, 147 plants and is just over 600 square feet in size. The garden was funded by the St. Paul Garden Club, Vadnais Lake Water Management Organization, and the White Bear Lake Area Historical Society. Many thanks to all who helped and contributed to this project.
