West and Southwest Philadelphia

Pollinator Pathway

Welcome to the West and Southwest Philadelphia Pollinator Pathway page! It is spring of 2021 and we are growing our pathway day by day -- thank you for your interest. Leading our pathway is a group of neighbors, “West Philly Native Plants and Pollinators” (WPNPP) -- we’re a Facebook-based network rooted in real-world activities dedicated to expanding the use of native plants in our gardens and community spaces to support a healthy and sustainable ecosystem for all.

One of our goals is to develop pollinator/wildlife corridors throughout West and Southwest Philly that will transform our urban gardening landscape from one of isolated pockets of native plants to an interconnected network that will support wildlife (particularly pollinators) as well as beautify our communities. We envision a time when walking through West and Southwest Philadelphia means walking through a patchwork of native plant gardens, bursting with a diversity of plants, flowers, and trees supporting an even wider variety of wildlife.

We’re actively working with local organizations this spring to identify partners who will assist with this effort, providing education, volunteer opportunities, gardening support, and other resources to help grow the West and Southwest Philadelphia Pollinator Pathway. Stay tuned for more information!
