Vote to name York Region's new pollinator meadow
Oct. 19, 2022
York Region is inviting you to help it decide between 56 names for its new pollinator garden on Bayview Avenue.
The region has held a contest to name its new pollinator meadow located in Richmond Hill. Voting is now open for the public to decide which of the submitted names would best suit the location.
“We thank all who took time to submit a name for the meadow,” the region said. “A permanent sign will be installed at the meadow displaying the winning name.”
The garden aims to help pollinator species and provide an educational space for residents. It was built with 1,000 plants over the summer with both staff and volunteer support.
You can find a list of names and vote through the York Region website. The winning submission will win a prize pack.
The voting will run until Oct. 24, with the winner getting announced Oct. 28.
The region has indicated it will look to expand the pollinator meadow project into additional municipalities.
