Pollinator Pathway East Lyme (PPEL) is a non-profit organization run by volunteers and funded solely by donations. Our mission is to create pollinator-friendly habitats on public and private land because of the declining pollinator populations. There’s a fragile balance between native insects and native plants and PPEL can help. To accomplish this mission we are focused on two goals. The first is using native plants that have coevolved with our native pollinators to help maintain their existence and even increase pollinator populations. Secondly, we want to raise awareness of the importance of our native pollinators through educational outreach such as our Pledge Program and workshops.
