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 has recruited volunteers from Scarborough’s Guildwood neighbourhood to become Butterflyway Rangers. The Rangers have learned about bees, butterflies and wildflowers and have returned to their neighbourhood with a mission: to establish a neighbourhood butterflyway with at least a dozen pollinator patches.

At their training, the new Rangers heard from experts about local bees, butterflies and wildflowers. They also learned about community organizing, including tips on how to fundraise, host events and establish plantings at schools and parks.
