Spotlight on Nocturnal Pollinators
 Most well-known pollinators are active during the day. However, nocturnal pollinators such as moths, beetles, flies, and other insects are important for certain plants. Flowers dependent on nocturnal pollinators are often white, pale yellow, or pink with blooms that remain open or only open at night and often attract pollinators with their fragrant scents that become stronger at night.

Explore, Photograph, Identify, and Share!
We encourage you to get out in your own yard or garden to find, photograph, and ID your pollinators! 

We recommend using iNaturalist either on your smartphone or desktop to help you identify the insects and plants you may find.

Please share your pollinator and pollinator-friendly plant photos with us, we'd love to see them! Send your photos to

Let's take a closer look at a few of our local nocturnal pollinators and the plants they love.

Why sharing our pathway efforts with your neighbors matters! 

The Woodstock Pollinator Pathway's main goal is to build a "pathway" of closely connected pollinator-friendly habitats, neighborhood by neighborhood.  Many pollinators cannot fly far without access to food and shelter. And our individual yards are part of a larger ecosystem that pollinators need to move around in. A pathway creates connected pollinator-friendly areas in our own and our neighbors' yards. It is vital to our efforts to ask you to speak to your neighbors and encourage them to join this effort.  
The Map
The map shows the pollinator areas created by people who have joined the Woodstock, NY Pollinator Pathway.  We hope to have pollinator gardens as close together as possible so that pollinators can fly easily from one to another.  So, encourage your neighbors to create pollinator habitat and join the pathway!
