Mt. Scott Park Native Plant and Pollinator Patch Project

In March 2024, Portland Parks and Recreation collaborated with community members to install 400 native and pollinator-friendly plants in Mt. Scott Park. This mini project, which was completed earlier this month, will increase the biodiversity of the park and attract pollinators such as birds, bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects. 

When you visit the park, please be aware of these new plantings, and keep dogs leashed at all times.

❓ What is "biodiversity"?

Biodiversity is a scientific term that simply refers to the many different types of living things - such as people, plants, wildlife, fungi, and more - in an environment. Typically, the more biodiversity you have, the healthier and more resilient you and your environment are!
