Benton Soil and Water Conservation District
Many Thanks to the Benton Soil and Water Conservation District
for awarding Chintimini a generous grant to partially fund the construction of an educational exhibit on pollinators at the Chintimini Education Center's Demonstration Wildlife Garden. The exhibit will consist of a kiosk featuring a green roof composed of native plants that benefit pollinator species, a "bug hotel" under the roof to provide pollinator habitat, and signage promoting the value of providing pollinator habitat.
"The Benton SWCD's mission is to engage Benton County residents in the conservation and stewardship of natural resources for current and future generations.
We envision a future where the Benton Soil and Water Conservation District's services encourage people to value and enhance the resiliency and function of land and water from the floodplains of the Willamette River to the mountains and valleys of the Coast Range."
