It's a win-win! Beautify your own garden and help our town plant natives too! The pollinators thank you!
In April 2019, town organizations partnered to initiate the Pollinator-Pathway in New Canaan. These organizations have pollinator-friendly pieces of property that laid the initial framework for the pathway in town.
In June 2019, New Canaan officially launched the movement with a kickoff event at the New Canaan Library with presentations by Mary Ellen LeMay and Louise Washer.
Our goal is to continue the corridors of pollinator-friendly properties with private and public land. Residents are encouraged to "bee" on the pathway and sign up their own pollinator-friendly property by clicking the purple button below.
