NC Wildlife Federation Launches Butterfly Highway Campaign

The North Carolina Wildlife Federation has launched the Butterfly Highway – a statewide conservation initiative to help restore native pollinator habitats to areas impacted by urbanization, land use change and agriculture.

The goal of the initiative is to create a network of native pollinator plants to support butterflies, bees, birds and other pollen and nectar dependent wildlife. The network will include green spaces and pollinator gardens that will connect and thread throughout North Carolina to create The Butterfly Highway.

NCWF is working with the community, partners and supporters to add pollinator “pit stops” – areas that include native pollinator nectar and host plants – to residential yards, apartment balconies, libraries, community centers, parks and local businesses. There is no cost to join the Butterfly Highway network and register a garden or green space as a pollinator-friendly habitat.

Future Butterfly Highway efforts include engaging private landowners and public lands in native meadow and river restoration projects. NCWF also is partnering with utilities and other agencies to include native grasses, pollinator nectar and host plants in right-of-ways and other large tracts of land to have a comprehensive impact.
