On our 2nd expedition we paddled along the Quinnehtukqut (CT) River with truly local pollinator plants from the Ecotype Project- the native seed initiative of CT NOFA. Our expedition put these seeds back in the soil -the living seed bank- of this riparian corridor. Now that the plants are there, nature will use its myriad dispersal mechanisms to regenerate the ancient banks of the mighty river!
These gorgeous plants provide habitat & food for our pollinators all along the river and ensure local food security for us as we rewild our landscapes.
In 2021 we paddled from the top of Connecticut to the Long Island Sound- spreading the seeds of ecological resilience in traditional outrigger canoes.
A glimpse of our adventures on our first expedition on the river as we paddled 87 miles with 500 native plants from New Hampshire to Massachusetts !
