Post Road Pollinator Pathway Mural
Installation of mural illustrating the biodiversity and importance of creating native habitats for pollinating insects, birds and other wildlife.

The mural will beautify the 100-foot long wall at the bus stop across from the GHS football stadium and highlight the importance of pollinator habitat within our community.
The project’s organizers are calling on
the community to join this initiative by
donating to a crowdfunding campaign
or volunteering in the effort. If the
campaign reaches its $17,500 goal by
its fundraising deadline of May 21, 2021,
the project will receive a matching
grant of $7,500 from Sustainable CT’s Community Match Fund, which is an innovative funding resource for public, community-led sustainability projects. For project details and to donate, please visit:
“We hope this mural will ignite a conversation about the importance of pollinator habitat within the human ecosystem. Seventy percent of our food supply and arguably all of our natural landscape are dependent on pollination and these pollinating insects provide it,” says Myra Klockenbrink, member of Greenwich Pollinator Pathway.”
Goals, Projects & Maps
Our goal is to create a corridor of contiguous pollinator-friendly properties which connect existing open spaces, stream corridors, forests, parks, private gardens and natural fields.
Basic Criteria for Creation of a Pollinator Pathway:
Connects large natural areas.
Addresses ecological and physical needs of the site.
Ensures proper plant density to suppress invasive species growth.
Uses predominantly native, hardy/drought-tolerant plants that meet pollinator requirements.
Maintains the areas pesticide/herbicide-free and uses predominantly organic soil amendments.
The First Mile-Long Pollinator Pathway in Greenwich
Pollinator Garden Certification Program and Mapping
A new certification program was design to identify all the pollinator friendly properties in Greenwich. A group of experts will evaluate each garden while sharing an advice on maintenance and site enhancements. Each certified area will receive a special marker and will be featured on a map of pollinator friendly places. Mapping of these gardens will provide a useful display of areas which are easy to connect with new pathways and also indicate areas where more work needs to be done to support the habitat.
Please contact us at to request a certification for your very own garden. We will appreciate your participation and support in restoration of the steeply declining populations of pollinators. Combined efforts will make the difference!!!
