Ardsley Pollinator Pathway

Making significant change, one yard at a time.

Upcoming Events:

May 21 (Rain Date May 22): Planting the Hart's Brook Park and Preserve Monarch Butterfly Garden

Thanks to the Town of Greenburgh, Hart's Brook Park and Preserve, and a generous grant from Bronx River/Sound Shore Audubon, we are installing a Pollinator garden at Hart's Brook Prk - also on Ardsley's border. The native plants selected are super tough and carefree and can easily survive neglect and compete against weeds. Register here.

June 4 (Rain Date June 5), 1 - 4 pm: Second Annual Ardsley Pollinator and Vegetable Open Gardens

Mark your calendars! Come and see pollinator and vegetable gardens in Ardsley. Meet the gardeners, enjoy the gardens, be inspired, and ask questions. Garden description and map can be found here.

Our Mission

The Ardsley Pollinator Pathway Project's mission is to raise awareness, educate, and encourage the participation of Ardsley’s residents, businesses, government, and other organizations in the creation and maintenance of healthy pollinator habitats in the Village of Ardsley.

The world’s community of pollinators is in crisis.

  • One in four native bee species are facing extinction.

  • There are significant declines in other pollinator populations as well, which include beetles, ants, birds, moths, butterflies, flies, gnats, and small mammals, such as bats.

  • Pollinators are responsible for the reproduction of 80-95% of plant species on earth.

There are numerous causes for this decline, with habitat loss and pesticide use at the top.

Conservation techniques work! When homeowners, governmental agencies and private businesses commit to expanding pollinator-friendly, pesticide-free habitats, we will change the future for pollinators and secure our own. We encourage your home to become a node on a path through Ardsley!

No effort is too small! We need your help. They need your help.
