Establishing pollinator-friendly habitats and food sources for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinating insects and wildlife

What is a Pollinator Pathway?

  • pesticide-free corridors of native plants that provide nutrition and habitat for pollinators 

  • these protected corridors are created from a partnership of public and private properties 

  • even the smallest of available green spaces like flower boxes and curb strips can be part of the pathway

How to join?

  • include native plants on your property and manage invasive species

  • do not use pesticides and herbicides (click here for the pesticide policy & FAQ)

  • rethink your lawn--mow higher and less often; consider reducing lawn size by adding shrubs, trees, a mini meadow; leave some bare ground and dead wood for nesting native bees; leave some autumn leaves for overwintering eggs and pupae of pollinating insects

  • ​help spread the word by ordering a 6" or 12" sign showing your yard is on the Pollinator Pathway--here's how
