Work to eradicate invasive species and replant with natives is not yet finished at the Pocket Park across from Stop and Shop (in the buffer along the Norwalk River). Volunteers are needed to help get the work done.

The Wilton Garden Club is continuing this project as part of the effort to create a Pollinator Pathway through Wilton, something they are working on in conjunction with the Norwalk River Watershed Association, Wilton Library Association, Wilton Land Conservation Trust, and Woodcock Nature Center. The Pollinator Pathway is a response large-scale decline in honeybee numbers, in an effort to create pathways for native pollinators like moths, butterflies and birds to travel, which in turn, helps sustain wildlife and native plants.”

Planting at the Pocket Park will take place next Wednesday, June 6, beginning at 9 a.m.. All helpers are welcome and needed! Please bring gloves, trowels, kneeling pads and a water bottle. Volunteers are advised to wear long pants tucked into socks and long sleeves. To RSVP or ask questions, please contact Jackie Algon, via email. Our thanks in advance for your support of the Pollinator Pathway.
