Parkways for Pollinators Email Signup

EEC's Parkways for Pollinators program seeks to transform public spaces into pollinator forage and habitat, working to remediate the soil and capture carbon.


With seeds sourced from the community and the Field Museum, growing resources provided by Loyola's Urban Agriculture Program, and distribution through the Edgewater Environmental Coalition, we are pleased to offer native plant seedlings for our registered Parkways for Pollinators sites.


EEC provides resources including education, designs, planting supplies and materials, and native plant seedlings to registered sites.


Additional support provided from the Chicago Conservation Corps.
