Welcome to the Bedford Pollinator Pathway! Please download our brochure > and commit to at least four of the following steps.
- Avoid pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers
- Plant native trees, shrubs and plants
- Limit leaf blower use. Leaf blowers disrupt butterflies and bees that hibernate in the soil or in leaf litter
- Forgo fall clean up and leave some areas undisturbed during the winter season
- Switch off the lights! Light pollution harms nocturnal insects like moths, and distracts migrating birds
- Consider changing (a part) of the lawn into a meadow or creating planting beds
- Choose plants that don’t require extra watering
- Remove invasive species and replace them with native species
- Use living mulch in the form of ground covers and plants
- Place a yard sign in a good visual spot and invite people to join the Pollinator Pathways
Copies of the brochure, the ten steps and a yard sign are available for free at the Bedford2030 office
