Help us create community green space and pollinator habitat under the power lines in the Rainier Beach.The Green Line is a collaborative restoration project taking place under Seattle City Light’s transmission corridor in South Seattle. We have studied wild bees in the area for 3 years, and planted one acre of pollinator habitat to test how pollinator populations are affected.
At this project, you’ll learn more about the 100+ species of bees our team has identified, and the native plants and nesting habitats they need to survive!
We work with communities and public agencies to revive land by restoring and researching native plant and pollinator habitat, supporting urban agriculture, and activating community green spaces. By creating space to convene artistic and cultural expressions, we seek to inhabit the intersection of art and science.
The Common Acre is unique in the way we have integrated creativity into science-based ecological change. By sharing data driven, action oriented models, we seek to be one of hundreds, or thousands of groups working towards solutions.
