In 2021, Wellesley residents will be creating butterfly pathways through Wellesley and beyond. A butterfly pathway helps butterflies (and other native species like hummingbirds and beneficial bugs) move through the landscape. They want to create a natural environment focused on native plant species which butterflies and other beneficial bugs can thrive.
By working together, we can create a conducive habitat at a scale that can help butterflies and beneficial bugs to disperse more efficiently and contribute to sustaining healthy community of species. The first step is to map out public and private spaces dedicated to native, butterfly friendly gardens. If you have a native garden, please send a message to Bea and let her know where your garden is so it can be added to the map.
