The Town of Hawkesbury is trying to attract bees. Wildflowers have been planted on part of the lawn in front of the municipal garage on Main Street East in an effort to improve the habitat for honeybees and other pollinating insects. The total cost of the project is $600 but the taxpayers are not going to be stung for it. Each member of town council has contributed out of their own pocket to the effort.
“Hawkesbury needs to start many green initiatives and we have some land that can be used for that,” said Mayor Paula Assaly.
