Butterflies and bees are skilled in finding their way from plant to plant.  People need a little help. 

So that's why the Rogue Buzzway Project came into being... now people who want to track the progress of pollinators can find pollinator hangouts. 

A GIS (Geographic Information System) class at Southern Oregon University has been instrumental in making a map showing pollinator pathways.  Kristina Lafever from Pollinator Project Rogue Valley visits, with Jarrett Taylor and Seth Campbell, students from the GIS class.
