Ardsley Pollinator Pathway

Making significant change, one yard at a time.

Upcoming Events:

December Ardsley Pollinator Pathway Get Together and Seed Swap. Saturday, December 11, 11 am - 1 pm. Rain/snow date: Sunday, December 12, 11 am - 1 pm.

Let's get together 3 dimensionally! Our excuse is a seed swap, but the real reason is to bring us together as we celebrate the end of the gardening year and the upcoming winter solstice. We'll have lots of seeds to share if you want them (no need to bring any or take home any). All are welcome. Want to learn more about the Pollinator Pathway? Have gardening questions? Want to meet like-minding and supportive people? This is a great event to to do so. Hot chocolate, Mulled Apple Cider and sweets will be served at this outdoor event. Bundle up and come join the fun! 23 Orlando Avenue, Ardsley, NY. Plenty of street parking. For questions, email us.

The presentation has lots of information on how to collect and germinate native seeds (just in time for the December seed swap).

January Ardsley Pollinator Pathway Get Together via Zoom. Wednesday, January 12, 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm.

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.
