Canton - Educational Walk - Self-Guided Collinsville Pollen Trail

Self-Guided Collinsville Pollen Trail

Event Date: 
Self Guided
Rain Plan: 
Rain or shine.
Come take a self-guided tour and visit a unique section of the Farmington River Trail known as the Collinsville Pollen Trail. This expansive community planting project is the first of many pollinator pathway gardens in Canton. As you walk the paved bike trail from the historic green train depot heading east, you will see a work-in progress, including an ongoing invasive plant management project and successive areas of newly-planted pollinator-attracting native shrubs, trees, flowering perennials and grasses. Rich in railroad history, this area that runs parallel to Allen Place also features beloved Rattlesnake Brook and a meandering wooded nature trail with intermittent wooden bog bridges, accessible by stairs to and from Collinsville Pollen Trail for a fun little loop that families and pets can enjoy (please don't forget to bring bags)!
