Poetry Pollinators is another new initiative operating under our umbrella. Created by Julie Chase-Daniel and Santa Fe Poet Laureate Elizabeth Jacobson, their mission is to empower poetry, art, and education to bring back declining native bee populations and animate public spaces as ecological systems to support the flourishing of all species. Their first project will establish one to four wild native bee houses along the Santa Fe River and Park trails with the support of the City of Santa Fe River Commission and the Santa Fe Watershed Association.
