Lu’s Memorial Pollinator Garden

Since 2010, significant portions of the Gardens at Lake Merritt have been converted from lawn to pollinator habitat. This portion was planted to honor the memory of Lucille Rocha and offer nectar and host plants for pollinators. A tranquil Seed Fountain quenches the thirst of the fluttering Monarchs which now grace Oakland in growing numbers. Our volunteers cull habitat for caterpillars  and our butterfly education program offers local youth the chance to witness the miraculous metamorphosis.
