Butterflies Are Free. Saving Them Isn't, So Branford Is Helping

BRANFORD, CT -- Bees and other natural pollinators are incredibly efficient little critters, but they could always use a little help fulfilling their unique role in the world’s ecosystem — and the Branford Fire Department, working with Sustainable CT, is happy to do what it can to help. Project organizers are asking the community to join the initiative by donating money or volunteering in the effort. All community donations will be doubled by Sustainable CT’s Community Match Fund, funded by the Smart Seed Fund, Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation, and the Connecticut Green Bank, provides a dollar-for-dollar match to donations raised from the community, doubling local investment in projects.
