The Gabriel Park Nature Patch is a beautiful ecologically diverse pollinator landscape.
Special thanks to the neighborhood who came out in March to bring this pollinator garden to life with a wide variety of flowering native and ornamental plants.
Help care for this space!
Email program coordinator Eric Rosewall to get learn about upcoming stewardship events here.
Designed in partnership with the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, the Gabriel Park Nature Patch includes native and ornamental flowering shrub beds with natural seating and habitat features. The nature patch, across from the community garden and orchard, overlooks a beautiful pollinator meadow to the north that has over thirty varieties of native forbs, grasses, and wildflowers to support wildlife. Check out the plan below.
The nature patch will have a shelter, modeled on this one seen at Sabin School, to host community gatherings. (Construction is delayed until next fiscal year)
The nature patch will overlook an expansive pollinator meadow seen here during early establishment summer 2018.
