Pollinate TBM has four strategic policies under which determine the direction and tasks for each year.
1. Community Outreach and Education: our focus is to support the community, raise awareness
and educate residents on the benefits and need for pollinator gardens. In 2023 we will continue
to work with the Beaver Valley Community School, the L.E. Shore Public Library and The Town
of the Blue Mountains to enhance and expand existing pollinator gardens.
2. Habitat Stewardship: our focus is to improve the local environment throughout the Town of the
Blue Mountains for our native pollinators. We will continue to develop the Arthur Street
Pollinator and Council Beach gardens as well as increase the number of canoe gardens
throughout the town.
3. Municipal Policy: we support the Town of the Blue Mountains goal of community wellbeing and
sustainability by enhancing the character of the Town, supporting the expansion of the Town’s
Butterflyway. We support the development of local practices and policies to enrich the area
with a pollinator diverse habitat.
4. Governance and Development: our goal is to continue to develop our organizational structure
in a manner that ensures organizational sustainability and ensures accountability to the
individuals and groups that support our efforts.
