Returning to Nature: An urban wildlife park

$50 of $200,000 goal

Raised by 2 people in 1 month
Created April 18, 2019
Bedeque Bay Environmental Management Association (BBEMA) is a registered Not-for-Profit environmental organization and we are seeking funding to create an environmentally friendly, accessible park for the people of Summerside PE, Canada to enjoy. This park will highlight environmentally friendly practices, provide walking paths and other outdoor recreational opportunities, seating areas, educational signage, accessible fishing platforms, ecological friendly landscape and a park designed for people and wildlife. Included in this space will be native plant, community, edible and pollinator gardens.

This space will be for everyone to enjoy, offering a retreat from urban life within the heart of the city. The money donated will be used to hire a coordinator, purchase materials, equipment and supplies needed to complete the park. This will include lumber, stone, soil, trees, shrubs, ground plants, and planting equipment. We feel a coordinator is essential to ensure everything is done to a high standard. During the course of this project we will seek to include as many other youth groups, community groups and organizations as possible to assist with the planning, design and construction of the park, as we believe this will foster a sense of community ownership and ensure the park is used to the fullest.

We just wanted to let everyone know our application to the Community Foundation of PEI was approved and we were awarded $1500.00 to use toward the park for the construction of a new garden. Keep posted to see more information and remember to check out our Facebook page and website www.bbema.ca

We plan to set a number of goals as the campaign continues but we wanted to start off small. The first $5000 raised will be used to use purchase clover seed as a ground cover and to begin some of the rough landscaping.
