Pollinator Pathways

Are you interesting in fostering healthy natural habitats that support pollinating insects and birds? Then you’ve probably heard about Pollinator Pathways in Connecticut, and Branford. There is a state-wide effort of individual gardeners and land conservationists who commit to creating native, pesticide-free plantings. These are public and private pesticide-free corridors of native plants that provide nutrition and habitats for pollinators of many types. Even the smallest green spaces, like flower boxes and curb strips, can be part of a pathway.

Find out more about how you can do it in your own garden from Pollinator Pathways, a non-profit organization with groups rapidly sprouting up in towns all across the State.

Grow native pollinator-friendly plants. Growing native flowers, trees, and stewarding healthy soil, benefit our natural pollinators who depend upon specific host plants for their survival. There are some great resources on Native Plant lists that can help you get started. (Our thanks to the Lyme Land Trust for their educational resources.)
