The David Suzuki Foundation is looking for community partners to help bring butterflies and bees home to Cadboro Bay this year!
In February, we’ll be recruiting residents to join The Butterflyway Project. These keen volunteers will be trained as Butterfly Rangers that will help create patches of butterfly and bee-friendly habitat through their neighbourhoods.
In Victoria, we’re looking to partner with local groups, businesses and institutions that are willing to support the local troop of Rangers in Cadboro Bay. This could range from helping to spread the word about the program to getting your hands dirty during planting days, and more.
Once a dozen or more pollinator patches are planted in Cadboro Bay, it’ll officially be designated by the David Suzuki Foundation as a Butterflyway, including signs and inclusion in the national Butterflyway Project map.
In addition to joining the project as a partner group or institution, we are seeking applications for Ranger candidates starting February 2. Please share this message with any butterfly-lovers and aspiring community leaders in your networks! More info: www.davidsuzuki.org/butterflyway.
Butterflyway Call For Rangers
Do you want to help butterflies and bees in Cadboro Bay this year?
In February, the David Suzuki Foundation will be recruiting local residents from five cities across the country to join The Butterflyway Project. In each city, these keen volunteers will be trained as local Butterfly Rangers that will help create patches of butterfly and bee-friendly habitat through their neighbourhoods.
Ranger training in Victoria will be held March 4 and 5 at Goward House. The application deadline is February 16. To apply, go to www.davidsuzuki.org/butterflyway (after Feb.2).
Following two inspiring days of training, Rangers will go back to their neighbourhoods with a mission: to plant native wildflowers and shrubs in yards, schools, boulevards and parks — and have fun!
Once a Ranger troop plants a dozen or more pollinator patches in a neighbourhood, they’ll get official David Suzuki Foundation Butterflyway designation, including signs and inclusion in the national Butterflyway Project map.
Help bring nature home to your neighbourhood this year by joining The Butterflyway Project. Applications are due February 16. Please share this message with any butterfly-lovers and aspiring community leaders in your networks!
