Butterfly Project is a grass roots, volunteer-led, organization of New Yorkers with a common goal—to promote and assist in the planting and preservation of native plants in urban, public spaces in order to create and strengthen resources for native pollinators. We strive to increase education about native plants while supporting the active participation of people of all ages in local community, school and public gardens. By collaborating with local, city and state organizations, Butterfly Project seeks to advance efforts to sustain and increase habitat suitable for local wildlife.  If you are interested in volunteering or becoming a member, visit our website at and send us an email to let us know.
