Mission Statement

The Butterfly Gardeners Association seeks to foster an appreciation of butterflies, hummingbirds, dragonflies, and other lifeforms. We emphasize the need for conservation of natural habitats in our communities and around the world. Our programs promote the installation of butterfly gardens, children's environmental education, reading, and nonviolence programs.

Description

We link the stewardship of butterflies with serious issues such as the misuse and overuse of pesticides, global warming, ozone depletion, habitat and rainforest destruction, threats posed by genetic engineered crops that threaten butterflies and human health, and the fostering of cultural and biodiversity. Since butterflies are loved by all and serve as environmental indicators, they are excellent ambassadors for raising environmental consciousness.
