Trumbull

Pollinator Pathway

Welcome to Trumbull's Pollinator Pathway! We are excited to be building awareness with our residents and local businesses around this worthwhile and important endeavor. By spreading the word through in-person and virtual events, social media, and collaboration with our commercial and municipal partners, we hope to make Trumbull a pesticide-free and native pollinator garden mecca for bees, butterflies, birds, and other insects.
Trumbull is fortunate to have more open space per capita than any other town in Connecticut. Our parks boast meadows, rivers, ponds, and hundreds of acres of woods with walking and biking trails. These trails connect us with Bridgeport to our south and Monroe up to Newtown northward.

From our Meadow-Morphosis at Twin Brooks Park to our restoration of buffer zone along the Pequonnock at Old Mine Park and stops in-between, Trumbull has long-espoused the need for establishing native plants, removal of invasive plants, and the health of our local waterway.

On Earth Day 2021, First Selectman Vicki Tesoro officially declared the Town of Trumbull a Pollinator-Friendly Community and an official stop on the Pollinator Pathway.
