Join REI and Norwalk River Watershed Association (NRWA) for an enriching day of stewardship along the Norwalk River Valley Trail (NRVT). Volunteers are needed to help plant trees and shrubs and remove invasive plants along the Norwalk River. This event is part of the Norwalk Pollinator Pathway project which aims to restore pollinator habitat by planting native plants and avoiding pesticides. Join us to learn which plants are invasive and which are import natives that support our native bees, butterflies, and birds. This effort is part of an on-going partnership between NRWA and REI with support from the City of Norwalk. Mayor Harry Rilling will read the "Pollinator Proclamation" officially introducing Norwalk as part of the Pollinator Pathway. Enjoy refreshments and meet representatives from the organizations working together to restore both the riverbank and the gardens at Oyster Shell Park. This event is also supported by Sustainable Fairfield County, Cleaner CT Coalition, and NRVT. Join Us!
