Come and learn more about Butterfly Project and how you can help to create habitat for native pollinators and/or educate New Yorkers about them. Butterfly Project is a group of dedicated volunteers working together since 2003. We have helped to create over a hundred butterfly gardens, given away thousands of native pollinator plants, and presented dozens of workshops on New York City pollinators, particularly butterflies. Currently we promote native pollinator education through our work with New York City educators using the Butterfly Project Pollinator Curriculum Guide.
