Larchmont-Mamaroneck Pollinator Pathway
Our Mission - to support pollinators in local public and private spaces
The Larchmont-Mamaroneck Pollinator Pathway supports pollinators by strategically linking large green spaces via networks of pollinator-friendly gardens on public and private land.
Why are we doing this? 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 companies 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 the Sound Towns!
The Pathway in Larchmont-Mamaroneck. The LM Pollinator Pathway plan includes every home garden, large and small.

The Larchmont-Mamaroneck Pollinator Pathway
We are joining a patchwork quilt of pollinator projects around the county and the northeast to support our community in contributing to the restoration of habitat for area native plants and pollinators. Why? Pollinators are responsible for the reproduction of 80-95% of plant species on earth, and we have decimated them with our land-use practices.
The good news is that there is more acreage in private yards than there are in national parks! So the solution is in your own hands and right outside our backdoors: plant natives and stop using pesticides.
“In the past, we have asked one thing of our gardens: that they be pretty. Now they have to support life, sequester carbon, feed pollinators and manage water.”
