Bee City Kitchener


The City of Kitchener is proud to be officially recognized as a ‘Bee City’ and to celebrate our commitment to protecting pollinators in our community.  Through this designation, we will continue to create new pollinator habitat, provide education and community outreach opportunities, and look for creative ways to celebrate pollinators in our city.

Bee City projects:

  • Earth Day Event
    Saturday, April 27, 1-4 p.m. at Bechtel Park.
    Bee City Kitchener will be sharing information about pollinators and plants at the KW Earth Day event. Come celebrate with us and look for our display. 
  • Iron Horse Trail - A Pollinator Pathway
    We are excited to begin creating pollinator habitat along the Iron Horse Trail.  Our first phase of plantings will take place later this spring. Planting date and details will be posted here shortly. 
  • Pollinator meadows
    Visit Lakeside Park or Gzowski Park to see our newly created pollinator meadows. We have created these spaces to encourage and support pollinator diversity. Watch for an additional 2.5 acres of pollinator meadow habitat creation in Kitchener in 2019.
  • Pollinator Film Night At Kitchener Public Library
    Tuesday June 18, 6:30p.m. Hold the date! Planning is underway for a pollinator film night to be hosted at Kitchener Public Library in partnership with Bee City Waterloo. Details are being finalized and will be posted shortly.
