Riverside Preserve Community Work Day

Lyme Pollinator Pathway, the Lyme Open Space Coordinator, and the Lyme Land Trust co-sponsored a community work day at Riverside Preserve for CT Trails Day June 5, 2021. Participants learned to recognize plants in the meadow, especially the native wildflowers to be nurtured to support pollinators. We explained why invasive plants should be controlled and the methods to do that. The site was improved with a planting of live native plants and by removing invasive plants. Participants left with the knowledge and resources to create a pollinator patch of their own.
