Upcoming Events and Announcements

Welcome to the Bethany Pollinator Pathway Page at the Clark Memorial Library!

We aim to sustain and create native plantings in Bethany for pollinating bees and butterflies that are currently under threat, joining with nearby towns to support these essential insects.

Beginning in Fall 2020 we have three goals, listed below. Please check our announcements page for upcoming activities related to these goals, and email us at bethanypollinators@gmail.com if you would like to join our group!

Education

Learn about:

Surveys

Identify:

  • what plants are already growing in our many open spaces in Bethany, and
  • whether these form the beginnings of “pathways” through our town.

Planting

Encourage:

  • planting and seeding native plants for pollinators, especially to fill in “holes” in our pathways
  • and welcome the efforts of all Bethany citizens to plant in their own yards.

Pollinator-friendly plants are a feature of the Bethany Community Garden
