Transforming Vacant Land

Pollinator Gardens in Vacant Lots

Pollinator gardens contain a variety of native plants that provide pollinators with food, shelter, and places to raise young.  Given the importance of these pollinator sanctuaries, we've started to plant them on our cleaned up lots. Learn about the pollinator gardens that we planted in vacant lots throughout the city by previewing or downloading the files to the right. 

Creating Climate-Resilient Communities through Vacant Lot Restoration

Funding for this project was provided by a grant award made by the Wildlife Conservation Society through its Climate Adaptation Fund. Support to establish the Climate Adaptation Fund was provided by a grant to Wildlife Conservation Society from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
