Park naturalization pilot project now an ‘overgrown mess,’ local resident says

Vancouver project meant to attract pollinators to park

June 10, 2021  By CBC News

A pilot program introduced this year in Vancouver, aimed at attracting pollinators, has had its downside, according to at least one local resident. Falaise Park in East Vancouver has been allowed to grow naturally as a means of attracting bees and butterflies, but hidden among the taller grass have been garbage and needles, says Megan Watson, who has lived near the park for the past 25 years. She calls it an “overgrown mess.”
