I am excited to announce that Friends of Fairview is taking on an important role in restoring habitat in our community for nature's pollinators.

Located at Salish Pond, the Fairview Monarch Waystation will fulfill the first phase of our commitment to provide critical habitat for butterflies, bees and other pollinators while educating the community on the important role that insects play in our lives. ...
