About the Scarborough Guildwood Butterflyway
The Butterflyway Project is a citizen-led movement that is growing highways of habitat for bees and butterflies through neighbourhoods in communities across Canada.
The David Suzuki Foundation will recruit volunteers from Scarborough’s Guildwood neighbourhood in 2018 to become Butterflyway Rangers. The Rangers will learn about bees, butterflies and wildflowers and will return to their neighbourhood with a mission: to establish a neighbourhood butterflyway with at least a dozen pollinator patches this summer.
The free, daylong Ranger training will take place on April 15 at the Scarborough Village Recreation Centre. Participants will hear from experts about local bees, butterflies and wildflowers. They will learn about community organizing, including tips on how to fundraise, host events and establish plantings at schools and parks.
Rangers will be expected to volunteer at least four hours per month, from May to September. Each participant will receive a Ranger T-shirt, plus support and guidance (and lots of high fives!) from David Suzuki Foundation staff. There is no cost for participating in the Butterflyway Ranger program. To apply to become a Ranger in Guildwood, please fill out the application form below.
