Butterflyway Project in the Garden

The Butterflyway Project Event was a great hit in the garden this past Saturday. Many came out to learn about the different pollinators in the garden and our native butterflies, while learning how to help them thrive! Scroll through the photos to see how much fun we had in the garden and check out here for more info on the Butterflyway Project and how Riley Park Community Garden is involved.

Pollinator Week was last week, but this doesn’t mean you still can’t help out! The BIMBY (Butterflies In My Backyard) Project is a citizen scientist component of the Butterflyway Project, hosted by the David Suzuki Foundation. Volunteer Butterflyway Rangers in Vancouver, Richmond and the District of North Vancouver, will take photos of local butterflies in 2019 to help document sightings. Our goal is to help identify B.C. butterflies and enrich our knowledge of how to help butterflies find food and shelter. Click here for more details on this project.
