TLGV has self-certified its reopening to ensure safe practices are in place.

What Is The Last Green Valley?

Welcome to The Last Green Valley

The Last Green Valley is green by day and dark by night. We are a National Heritage Corridor with a rich history in a surprisingly rural landscape. With 84% forest and farm, we are the last swath of dark night sky in the coastal sprawl between Boston and Washington DC.

The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) works for you in the National Heritage Corridor. Together, we can care for it, enjoy it and pass it on!

Hummingbird moths - like all moths - are pollinators. While bees do a lot of the pollination heavy lifting, all kinds of bugs chip in. So how does pollination work? This photo gives you an idea. The bug uses the flower as a food source and in the process, pollen gets attached to its body. When the insect moves on to a new flower, the pollen gets deposited, helping to fertilize the second plant, while continuing the cycle as the insect picks up more pollen. Pollination ensures plant reproduction and diversity.

The first hummingbird moth I ever saw terrified me. Like a lobster crossed with a mouse! Now I find them fascinating. 🙂

They are strange to see - but fascinating too!
