The Town of Islip Pollinator’s Pathway Group is part of the Suffolk Alliance for Pollinators (SAP). SAP is a coalition of local groups whose goal is to make Suffolk County a greener pollinator corridor through good gardening practices. The goal of SAP is to amplify the efforts of many groups helping residents, towns and communities become part of the growing regional initiative led by the Pollinator Pathway.
SAP will work to make Suffolk County gardens pollinator-friendly by creating habitats and food sources for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinating insects and wildlife. SAP will promote pollinator-safe environments by educating home gardeners about new approaches to lawn care, promoting cultivation of native plants, fostering gardening best practices, and avoiding pesticides. This coalition will undertake outreach programs with the help of public libraries and a range of municipal entities. We are attempting to identify “qualified “pollinator gardens within the Township of Islip and add them to the L.I. Pollinator Pathway Map. We want to identify gaps and see a lot more butterflies & bees in 2023!
