The goal of the Butterflyway Project is to establish citizen-led networks of bee and butterfly-friendly wildflower patches through neighbourhoods across Canada, starting in five cities in 2017.

The project has begun in Toronto, Markham, Richmond, Victoria and Montreal this spring. In each city we have recruited a team of community volunteers, called the Butterflyway Rangers. These local Rangers have been trained by the David Suzuki Foundation in March and April. They have now returned to their neighbourhoods with a mission to plant “Butterflyways” of native wildflowers in yards, schools, streets and parks.

Once a troop of Rangers plants at least a dozen pollinator patches in their neighbourhood, they will formally be recognized by the David Suzuki Foundation as an official Butterflyway, through signage and inclusion in our national Butterflyway Project map.
