The Butterfly House has joined with St. Louis County Parks and Libraries to be a part of the national movement to protect pollinators and their habitats through our newly-launched initiative, Project Pollinator.
The mission of Project Pollinator is to promote an appreciation of all pollinators through education and creation of pollinator gardens. Our goal is to educate the public about the importance of pollinators, beyond the familiar bees and butterflies, and to provide demonstration gardens at county parks, libraries and other public venues.
We launched on March 15th, 2016. On that date we issued a challenge to the municipalities of St. Louis County to plant pollinator gardens in their public spaces. Residents of St. Louis County can join in the effort by planting pollinator gardens of their own. Together, we can work to restore habitats and improve the health of native pollinators.
