The Bedford Pollinator Pathway is a collaboration of Bedford residents and landowners, the Town of Bedford, and conservation organizations focused on the strategic planning, and stewardship of privately-held and publicly-held land to establish habitat and food sources for pollinating insects and wildlife.

Bedford 2020, Bedford Audubon, the Bedford garden clubs, Healthy Yards and The Westchester Land Trust are all working together on the Pollinator Pathways in the Town of Bedford, NY. The goal is to support the pollinators in our town, but also to raise awareness about more sustainable landscaping practices in general. Everyone is welcome to join the Pathways: individual homeowners, organizations, store owners, schools, and town-managed landscapes.
