After you register, you will receive a link to the webinar a couple of days before the event.
Louise Washer, a co-founder of the Pollinator Pathway Northeast project, will discuss how to bring more birds, bees and butterflies to your yard and how to start a Pollinator Pathway in our town. The Pollinator Pathway project is entirely volunteer-led and its goal is to establish safe and healthy habitat and food sources for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinating insects and wildlife in a series of continuous corridors. Most native bees have a range of about 750 meters, so the goal is to connect neighboring properties that are no farther apart than that. This project began in 2017 in Wilton, CT, has spread to over 200 towns in 5 states, and the list keeps growing. The talk will include a discussion of what threats pollinators face, how their populations have declined in recent years, and what we can all do in our own yards and towns to support them.
