The Butterfly Highway

January 2, 2015

Angel Hjarding's Butterfly Highway project is gathering steam. Fresh off a presentation on citizen science in Sweden, she is continuing to organize in CHARP partner neighborhoods to create the Butterfly Highway. The Butterfly Highway is a community-conducted, citizen science effort to create "highways" for vital pollinators in Charlotte, NC. Green spaces and pollinator gardens will connect and thread through Charlotte to create the Highway. Representatives from Charlotte neighborhoods near to the center city will work closely with Angel to count, observe, and create pollinator gardens to form the Butterfly Highway. 

Her presentation in Sweden on citizen science can be found on her new blog (butterflyhighway.org) which will be making updates on the project's progress.
