Pollinator Garden

The Pollinator Cantina was established in the Spring of 2018 with support from a Transforming Our World grant from the Office of the EVPAA as part of the UTRGV Strategic Plan. The garden is located on the Brownsville campus between the LHSB and BioMed buildings, next to the resaca.

UTRGV is now a certified Bee Campus USA!

The purpose of the garden is three-fold: 1) the conservation of butterflies and other pollinators, 2) to act as a platform for experiential learning and research projects for students, and 3) to engage the community by providing information on the importance of pollinators and what they can do to help conservation efforts.

In the spring of 2018, construction of the garden was begun on the Brownsville campus. The initial planning of the garden layout was done in consultation with the UTRGV facilities staff.
