Butterflies and Bumblebee Garden

Map pinEdmonton, Alberta

In the middle of the city, it is hard to find flowers and plants to support the safety and food source of butterflies and bumblebees. In our action, we will research what butterflies and bumblebees look for and need in a garden and learn how to plant and maintain a flower garden.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots

Do great things in your community.

Jane Goodall’s Roots & Shoots began in 1991 when Dr. Jane met with 12 Tanzanian high school students who wanted to tackle urgent problems in their community. Since that meeting, Roots & Shoots groups have multiplied many times over and can now be found in nearly 100 countries around the world. Wherever there’s a group, young people are making change that benefits animals, people and the environment.
