Our Learning Village site offers ample opportunities to practice restoration ecology and naturescaping. During this Pollinator Series project, we take steps to bring butterflies back to ORREC’s natural habitat.
Choosing sunny areas for butterfly gardens.
Planting flowers to provide nectar.
Surveying the area for the right “weedy” plants that encourage the growth of caterpillar larvae.
Studying our butterfly population with university experts and seasoned mentors.
