The Ridgefield Pollinator Pathway is a collaboration of Caudatowa Garden Club, Norwalk
River Watershed Association, RACE, Ridgefield Conservation Commission, Ridgefield Garden Club,
Ridgefield Public Library, Woodcock Nature Center, and with the support of the Land Conservancy of Ridgefield, Norwalk River Valley Trail, Hudson-to-Housatonic Partnership, Highstead Foundation,
and the community of Ridgefield.

Our goal is to create a corridor of contiguous pollinator-friendly properties including the open spaces in Ridgefield and the adjacent private ones belonging to residents.

If you live along the designated Pollinator Pathway we especially hope you’ll decide to join the fun and sign up to participate.

Everyone in Ridgefield should consider taking part in the Pollinator Pathway project since the bees and butterflies don’t recognize the signs and only look for the nectar!

We want to thank the following organizations for participating: Keeler Tavern, Jesse Lee Methodist Church, The Aldrich Museum, St. Stephen's Episcopal Church, Casagmo, ACT of CT, Nod Hill Brewery, Ridgefield High School, Scotland, Farmingville and Barlow Mountain elementary schools.

Nod Hill Meadow
137 Ethan Allen Hwy Ridgefield, CT

Meadow was installed in May of 2021.  The Pollinator Meadow features eco-59 native plants.  The meadow was created by reclaiming unused space that was formally overgrown with invasive plants and shrubs.  The location is especially important due to its proximity to the Norwalk River.  Native trees, shrubs and plants have been installed along the Riparian buffer.
