Video: Celebrate National Pollinator Week: June 17-23 June 19th, 2024

Join us in celebrating National Pollinator Week 2024 at La Vista Ecological Learning Center and everywhere! Pollinator Week is a celebration of the vital role that pollinators play in our ecosystems, economies, and agriculture.

Benefits of Native Pollinator Gardens

01 – Offset threats to the monarch butterfly migration​
02 – Assure pollinators a diverse food source throughout the season​
03 – Provide herbicide-free nectar for a variety of pollinators.

Pollinators are responsible for every third bite of food we eat, and because their disappearance creates a hole in the ecosystem, we consider this effort important in contributing to the integrity of creation.

Part of being Christian is Protecting the Environment February 12th, 2015

B6According to Pope Francis, protecting the environment is part of a Christian’s identity, not an ideological option. “A Christian who does not protect creation, who does not let it grow, is a Christian who does not care about the work of God; that work that was born from the love of God for us,” the Pope added. “And this is the first response to the first creation: protect creation, make it grow.”
