Westport Pollinator Pathway

Since 2019, The Wakeman Town Farm, Earthplace and the Westport Garden Club  have worked in partnership with many town organizations to enhance our public gardens and create new sustainable spaces, while encouraging residents to add native plants and adopt pollinator-friendly practices in their own gardens.  Educational events are ongoing.

In January 2023, the Westport RTM voted to adopt an ordinance to restrict the use of

gas-powered leaf blowers after hearing testimony and reviewing data about the damage this equipment inflicts on the environment.  View the ordinance here: https://shorturl.at/auzGO

On April 22, 2019, Westport First Selectman James Marpe designated 2019 / 2020 as

"The Year of the Pollinator" in Westport, delivering an official proclamation encouraging residents and businesses to adopt practices to protect important species.
