Led by Eagle Scout candidate Seamus Masone of Scout Troop 125 in Wilton, a team of scouts from Wilton and Norwalk have teamed up to remove invasive species and plant native species along the Norwalk River Valley Trail (NRVT) in Wilton. This effort is part of the Pollinator Pathway Project organized by the Norwalk River Watershed Association (NRWA).

Seamus Masone said; “Our team is also removing vines that can harm trees and installing bee and bird houses. Our goal is to help establish better habitat and food sources for pollinators including bees, birds and butterflies”.

The Scouts are planting native pollinator species including Goldenrod, Mountain Mint, New England Aster, Swamp Milkweed and Pussy Willow.

Liz Craig of the NRWA said; “This is a wonderful, hardworking group. It’s great to have young people showing this kind of commitment, out working on the Trail”.

The vision of the NRVT is a thirty-mile, multi-use trail running from Calf Pasture Beach in Norwalk, through Wilton, Ridgefield and Redding and terminating at Rogers Park in Danbury.
