Irvington Pollinator Pathway Project

The Irvington Pollinator Pathway Project is a collaboration of the Greater Irvington Land Trust, the Green Policy Task Force, the Friends of the Irvington Library, the O’Hara Nature Center and a wide range of Irvington residents and land owners.  Our mission is to (i) engage and educate our community about the relationship between pollinators and native plants, (ii) promote public awareness about the crucial role that pollinators play in sustaining our environment and supporting our food chain, and (iii) support efforts to preserve and protect both public and private open space throughout our Village.


We are working with a wide range of groups to develop pollinator-friendly gardens throughout the Village that support native plants and promote biodiversity.  We have also established a Living Classroom Series, which invites in speakers to address topics of interest for the community.
