Turn your garden into a butterfly sanctuary this spring

Wednesday, March 10th 2021, 1:57 pm - We owe a lot to pollinators, so it's time we give something back.

Tucked away behind a row of houses, you can find North Vancouver's very own secret garden that literally comes alive during spring and summer.

The garden is part of the David Suzuki Foundation Butterflyway Project, a citizen-led movement growing highways and laneways of habitat for wild pollinators like butterflies and bees across Canada. The more than 200 volunteers, known as Butterfly Rangers, lead efforts to help grow butterfly-friendly corridors through their neighbourhoods as part of the project.
