Upper Delaware Scenic Byway 2022 Grants

FOSTERING THE FLYWAY ON THE BYWAY

The Delaware River serves as a flyway for the annual migration of Northeastern Monarch Butterflies from their summer breeding grounds to their wintering roosts in central Mexico. Upper Delaware Scenic Byway, Inc. challenges organizations to help its mission of promoting butterfly habitat through programs and events that educate the public about pollinator gardens, teach young people about butterflies, advertise the presence of butterflies along the byway, and other creative ideas.
