Pollinator Pathway NW

Promoting Pollinator Health and Habitat in the Northwest


What is a Pollinator Pathway?

A pollinator pathway is a continuous corridor of native, pesticide-free plantings that provide habitat and food sources for bees, butterflies, hummingbirds and other pollinators.
Pollinator pathway projects are managed by volunteers working with local farms, nurseries and businesses to plant gardens and provide educational outreach and advocacy with the goal of creating a network of gardens where pollinators can thrive.
