Welcome to the Hartford, Connecticut Pollinator Pathway!
Connecticut Science Center’s Nassau Science Plaza
250 Columbus blvd, Hartford CT 06103
The Connecticut Science Center’s Nassau Science Plaza, adjacent to the upper CT River greenway, includes over 40,000 sq feet of engineered green roof systems showcasing the value of urban biodiversity for pollinators and other wildlife. In addition to the benefits of a green roof the gardens contain over 70 species of native plants providing a hotspot for nectar diversity that attracts a wide variety of pollinators. In addition to the self-interpretive signage the plaza gardens are a well-used outdoor classroom and a space for public enjoyment.

Asylum Hill Neighborhood Association - Immanuel Congregational
Last year our Asylum Hill Neighborhood Association (AHNA) received a "Love Your Block Grant" from the City of Hartford to plant six pollinator gardens at six area churches. Ours was the smallest of the gardens, as I could only get permission for the area in the picture, about 66 sq feet. The pictures show our garden being planted, the garden itself, the echinacea, coreopsis and bee balm growing, and the asters that came in the Fall.
