The Butterflyway Project: Start your own pollinator garden

June 1 @ 10:00 am

“FREE workshop: Learn about the Butterflyway Project, native pollinator habitats, and get help starting your own. Free seeds! Physical challenge level: easy More details and free registration (required) at


The Butterflyway Project is a citizen-led movement growing highways of habitat for bees and butterflies across Canada. Wild pollinators such as butterflies and bees are crucial to human survival. Climate change, land development and pesticide use threaten their survival, and therefore ours as well. The Butterflyway Project helps people create viable pollinator habitat in neighbourhoods across Canada. Local Butterflyway Ranger Charlene MacDonald will share her knowledge about the program and tips on how you can get started creating your own pollinator habitat here on the South Shore. In 2021, Charlene teamed up with her granddaughter to distribute dozens of native plants and seed kits, resulting in over 60 plantings as part of the Lunenburg County Butterflyway. Charlene is a generous mentor, native seed collector and sharer. Free Swamp Milkweed seed packets available to all participants! Door prize: win an official Butterflyway Project Plant Pack (a garden plant pack of 5 species, a Butterflyway sign, some simple instructions/information and option to be added to the official DSF Butterflyway Project Map in 2024.”
