Join 250 King residents and help us create a work of art worth celebrating! Paint a puzzle piece to help us create our Butterfly Puzzle Mural to be hung for all to see at the King Township Municipal Centre.
Project launches during Pollinator Week, starting June 20, and continues all summer until Flight of the Monarch Day on August 21. Puzzle pieces will be available to paint at select community events and at the King Heritage & Cultural Centre, Tuesday- Saturday, 10am-4pm. Keep an eye on this page for updates on when we will be in your community!
The Pollinator Community Art Project directly supports the Township of King’s Bee City Certification and Mayors Monarch Pledge actionable goals. Municipalities participating the Mayors Monarch Pledge are required to complete a minimum of three actions annually from the National NWF list of 24 actions for municipalities. One of the actions King has committed to implement for 2022 involves creating the Pollinator Community Art Project. The project aims to engage residents and promote monarch and pollinator conservation as well as cultural awareness and recognition.
