It’s National Pollinator Week, Lexington. Have you heard the buzz about Columbia Gas’ wildlife-friendly vegetation management practices?

Working to transform pipeline rights-of-way into a pollinator paradise for bees, birds + butterflies, Columbia Gas maintains seven sites (including four Monarch Waystations) across Central Kentucky.

Sites are converted by removing existing vegetation + planting specialized seeds to grow pollinator-friendly plants like purple coneflower, spotted bee balm, and coreopsis.

This program — growing annually — helps reduce the carbon footprint + mitigate harmful vegetation control measures. This effort is un-bee-lievable.
