Vancouver Butterflyway

Help butterflies, bees and birds find food and shelter in Vancouver! Build a wild pollinator–friendly Butterflyway with your neighbours, school communities and friends.

Join the Vancouver Butterflyway!

We’re thrilled to be recruiting Butterflyway Rangers in Vancouver, a city filled with neighbourhood gardens and parks. Many Vancouverites are passionate about planting pesticide-free flowers and plants to help butterflies and other wild pollinators find food and shelter.

We look forward to Ranger applicants from all Vancouver neighbourhoods. If you live in the Commercial Drive, Dunbar, Kerrisdale, Kitsilano, Riley Park or West End neighbourhoods, you might find a vibrant community of cohorts! VIA Rail has committed Pacific Central Station as a Butterflyway patch.

We’re excited for Vancouverites to meet and work with Butterflyway Rangers from the District of North Vancouver and Richmond. The sky’s the limit for Butterflyway Rangers in the Lower Mainland!

Butterflyway Ranger recruitment

This is our third year recruiting and training Lower Mainland Butterflyway Rangers. We began in 2017 and have Rangers in Richmond, the District of North Vancouver and Victoria. They’re planting pesticide-free flowers and plants to help wild bees, butterflies and birds find food and shelter.

Now Vancouver Butterflyway Rangers can join the movement and help create a north-south pollinator corridor!

The Vancouver training session will take place from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 9, 2019 at the UBC Botanical Garden. Attendance is essential for all applicants.
