Planting for Butterflies

  • Studio for Urban Design Outpost 1028 Market Street San Francisco, CA, 94102 United States (map)

Western tiger swallowtail seed-sowing workshop!

Nature in the City + Studio for Urban Projects is putting on this event to plant seeds to support the Western Tiger Swallowtail, a native butterfly that has adopted Market Street as it would its natural habitat — a river canyon ecosystem. By helping them plant thousands of seeds, you will assure that 'tigers' will thrive along Market Street stopping more often to refuel and to awe passersby. Once the seedlings grow, we’ll find a home for them along Market Street with help from San Francisco's civic design team. 

Please spread the word to nearby community gardeners, and let us fill the streets with habitat.
