Pollinator Pathway Stamford

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED! Would you like to help with our social media a few times a month? Join our steering committee? Sign up to work on future projects with us? Do you have other skills to offer? Get in touch! PollinatorPathwayStamford@gmail.com

Welcome to Pollinator Pathway Stamford! We are helping to create a corridor of safe habitats for birds, bees, butterflies and other pollinators that extends across our city and into other towns. Our goal is to make Stamford’s private, commercial and city spaces pesticide free and safe for pollinators.

 

Pollinators have limits to the distances they can travel and due to urbanization and the increasing use of turf lawns and asphalt parking lots, pollinators face “food deserts”, leading to their decline. Adding native plants, trees and shrubs help pollinators because they have co-evolved together.

 

At least 35% of our food supply relies on pollinators for fertilization. Garden flowers, shrubs and trees depend on pollinators, too. With the alarming decline of native and honey bee colonies, a projected 40% of all insect species threatened by extinction, and the rise of toxic pesticides in lawn and insect control products, we hope to raise awareness and support sustainable practices for lawns, gardens and landscapes.

 

Everyone is welcome to join the Pollinator Pathway Stamford: residents, organizations, businesses, schools, and town-managed properties.
