Easton Pollinator Pathway Portal

Plans are underway for Easton’s Pollinator Pathway Project. The Easton Garden Club is working in partnership with others in town and surrounding communities to create new pollinator-friendly spaces while encouraging residents and farms to create their own native plant gardens.

We invite you to visit this space to learn about educational programs, resources and updates! Learn about the Pollinator Pathway initiative, how to start your own pollinator garden and how to buy native plants  that are untreated and support pollinator health. 

 

Consider taking the Pledge to support local pollinators  by adding native plants  and refraining from the use of pesticides and herbicides. Scroll down for our calendar of events and ongoing projects. For more information contact Jean Stetz-Puchalski
