DOT to expand wildflower areas along Connecticut highways to help bees, butterflies

Connecticut’s bees, butterflies and hummingbirds are soon going to have a lot more places along state highways where they can refuel on wildflowers as a result of a newly expanded “Pollinator Corridor” program.The state Department of Transportation already has eight designated locations where minimal mowing is allowing wildflowers such as flea bane, birdfoot trefoil and daisies to blossom to help out stressed-out wild pollintors.A new DOT list released this month includes 51 new spots along state highways, on- and off-ramps and medians that have been designated as “conservation areas” where invasive plants will be removed and native flowers and grasses will be allowed to grow.
