Save the Planet -- One Bee at a Time
Join the Pollinator Pathways Program
Under the auspices of the White Plains Beautification Foundation (WPBF), Pollinators of White Plains is joining communities throughout Westchester and Connecticut to bring back the pollinators in an exciting new initiative, called Pollinator Pathways.

The goal is to improve our habitats for pollinators by planting native plants and understanding the importance of eliminating pesticides.
WPBF has started distributing Pollinator Pathway signs (at left) in White Plains to properties that participate in the program -- residents, commercial locations, residential communities and neighborhood association-sponsored gardens.

While the program is national, implementation is local and adaptable to each community.
