New “Bee Hotel” Sculpture Supports Local Pollinators, Showcases Poetry


Eco-Art Installation Donated to City by Poetry Pollinators

If the tree-limb-turned-sculpture in the first photo looks at all familiar, that’s because it used to be part of a large old cottonwood tree at the Harvey Cornell Rose Park! In the fall of 2021, the Parks Division removed the tree because its poor health – the result of a severe fungal infection – meant it posed a safety hazard. After the removal, Parks worked to recycle and repurpose what was left of the tree, including distributing pieces of it to interested members of the community for reuse.
