Downtown Bridgeport Establishes Stop on the Northeast Pollinator Pathway
The Bridgeport Downtown Special Services District (DSSD) is delighted to announce that with the completion of its multi-site “Colorful Bridgeport” public space beautification project, Downtown Bridgeport is now established as a Pollinator Pathway site. Pollinator-friendly habitats and food sources attract the bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other wildlife whose pollination enables the plants in our yards, parks, farms, and therefore our food system to reproduce. Green and open space beautification projects are essential to ensure a safe, welcoming setting while also serving as a platform for the community’s many cultural offerings. The goal of the project was to activate the Downtown’s open spaces as a means to drive demand for and more frequent return visiting to locally owned businesses within the Downtown district. The network of partners that participated in the project are as diverse and vibrant as the plantings and pollinators they will attract. Read the full press release here.
