The Butterflyway Project
Call for Volunteers!Apr 26, 2021 - By Zivana Pavic
If you would like to join a small team of volunteers to plant pollinator patches in dedicated spots of the Hunt Club Community, we welcome you!
By planting pollinator-friendly plants, especially those native to Eastern Ontario area, you will create precious habitats for local bees, butterflies and other beneficial insects without which our food supply would thin out.
You can help out on the Butterflyway Project by planting wild flowers, donating plants and other useful material, by looking after a newly planted pollinator patch or in other ways. Join us and be part of the action!
Please submit your completed Volunteer Registration Form (below) by May 20.

Planting will be done two people at a time or, if restrictions continue, individually in 90-minute intervals, where volunteers would replace each other so that there is no direct contact. All COVID-19 protocols that are in force on the day of planting will apply.
