Peace and Freedom Pollinator Garden
In honor of the Ukrainian people’s valiant struggle for peace and freedom, Birds, Bees, and Butterflies – Bemidji is reaching out for help to plant a pollinator garden featuring sunflowers and other native wildflowers and grasses. Sunflowers are the national flower of Ukraine. The location for this pollinator garden will be along Anne Street, across from the new Veteran’s Home.
Your contribution will be used to help pay for native wildflower and grass seed, site preparation, and initial maintenance. We hope to install the planting this season. Drive by and watch our progress!
If you or your organization would rather send a check with your contribution, make it out to:

If you want to participate in a workday to clean up and prepare the site for planting, send us an email with your contact information and we'll notify you when we get it scheduled. You can also let us know if you fill out the donation form below.
