The Ridgefield Pollinator Pathway is a collaboration
of Caudatowa Garden Club, Norwalk
River Watershed Association, RACE, Ridgefield
Conservation Commission, Ridgefield Garden Club,
Ridgefield Public Library, Woodcock Nature Center, and with the support of the Land Conservancy of Ridgefield, Norwalk River Valley Trail, Hudson-to-Housatonic Partnership, Highstead Foundation,
and the community of Ridgefield.
Our goal is to create a corridor of contiguous pollinator-friendly properties including the open spaces in Ridgefield and the adjacent private ones belonging to residents.
If you live along the designated Pollinator Pathway we especially hope you’ll decide to join the fun and sign up to participate.
Everyone in Ridgefield should consider taking part in the Pollinator Pathway project since the bees and butterflies don’t recognize the signs and only
look for the nectar!
So far there are six pollinator "anchor" gardens or plantings in Ridgefield at the corner of Simpaugh Tpk and Rt. 7 along the Norwalk River and five on Main Street at Keeler Tavern, Jesse Lee Methodist Church, The Aldrich Museum, St. Stephen's Episcopal Church and Casagmo. We thank all of these organizations for participating!
Add your property, a town garden, or a pesticide-free open space in your town to this map of private and public way-stations along the Pollinator Pathway.
The black and white butterfly logos mark residences that provide a food and shelter for pollinators.

The blue pins mark protected open space that provides pesticide-free native habitat for wildlife, including pollinators.
