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:

  • 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 Party - Friday June 21, 4-7 p.m. Pollinator habitat planting at Iron Horse Trail. Meet at Catalyst 137 building located at 137 Glasgow St. Kitchener.
