Town of Bethany
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 email@example.com if you would like to join our group!
- the importance of pollinating
insects and native plants,
- how to identify essential plants, and about
- resources for information for buying plants and seeds.

“Gardening Made Easier, Gardening for Nature”
- what plants are already growing in our many open spaces in Bethany, and
- whether these form the beginnings of “pathways” through our town.
- 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.
