Construction is underway on the Arboretum’s new Pollinator and Bird Garden. The $9 million project is the culmination of years of development going back nearly a decade.

Arboretum director Kim Steiner said the new garden will be unlike anything done before.

“Nobody has ever tried to do what we’re going to try to do here and that is attract every single species of native pollinator in this region. And that’s several hundred species of insects,” Steiner said.
