About the Victoria 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.
Butterflyway Rangers in Victoria, B.C., planted more than 10 pollinator gardens in the city, at private residences, public parks, and schools and hospitals.
The Victoria Rangers built a bicycle-propelled flower buggy as a mobile pollinator classroom. This garnered much interest from young and old alike, inspiring many to plant their own pollinator gardens!
The Victoria Rangers also employed art and creativity, building giant butterfly puppets and a butterflyway float to help teach people what they can do to support pollinators. They joined the Oak Bay Tea Party Parade and won second prize!
Pollinator education and habitat restoration continues in Victoria, as one of our Rangers was awarded a municipal grant to build pollinator gardens throughout the Fernwood area, and to run pollinator education programs for local elementary students.
