Welcome to Southold Pollinator Pathway! The Town of Southold is at the northeastern end of Long Island, New York on the beautiful peninsula that is the North Fork. Southold is way more than beaches, trails, restaurants, and wineries, though extends from Riverhead to Orient Point and is nestled between the Peconic Bay and the Sound.
Our main goal is to help all our community members educate, understand, and adopt eco-friendly landscaping practices that support birds, butterflies, bees and other pollinators. The proposal for the native plant enhancement and revitalization of the meadow at Custer Preserve in Southold Town has been accepted by the Southold Town Board. This joint project (Southold Peconic Civic Association and Group for the East End) will show what a motivated ecologically-minded community can accomplish. We hope to jump start the ripple effect throughout our communities one successful pollinating planter, yard, garden, farm, and town to move away from the sterile monoculture of lawns that pollute our waters and don't feed the pollinators. .
