The Norwalk River Watershed Association (NRWA) is working hard to build pollinator pathways through Wilton–conjoining natural habitats that connect Wilton to neighboring towns and provide pesticide-free food sources and shelter for bees, birds, butterflies and other pollinating insect.
Part of that mission includes seeding the disturbed ground along new sections of the Norwalk River Valley Trail (NRVT) as they go in. On Sunday, May 27, they’ll be working from 12-2 p.m. on the newest section of the NRVT in Wilton and need volunteers to weed and seed with native, pollinator-friendly wildflowers and grasses before invasive plants can take root along the trail.
Interested volunteers can meet at the cul-de-sac on Twin Oaks Ln. at noon. Participants should bring gloves, a rake, spade, shovel and/or bucket for watering. Limited supplies will be available. To take part, register on the Pollinator Pathway website.
This project is funded by the Norwalk River Watershed Association and is co-sponsored by Pollinator Pathway organizers: NRVT, NRWA, Wilton Garden Club, Wilton Land Conservation Trust, and Woodcock Nature Center.
