Little Norway Park Pollinating Picnic is one of David Suzuki Foundation’s Homegrown National Park projects that took place in the Bathurst Quay neighbourhood. The neighbourhood shares its setting with a mid-sized airport that increasingly impacts the quality of community experience and open spaces.
