Posted on June 06, 2014 by Erin Grajek

The Botanical Gardens is opening their new Native Butterfly Exhibit with a fun family event, Monarch Madness, on June 8 from 10am-5pm. This event will welcome monarchs and other native butterflies to their new exhibit at the Botanical Gardens which will be on display for several weeks this summer.

Kid and family friendly butterfly and pollinator activities will take place including; Noodle Life Cycle crafts, Very Hungry Caterpillar crafts, Butterfly Finger Puppets, Pollinator Passport Games and more. Visitors can make friends with butterflies and walk through an enclosure set up inside the Botanical Gardens with the folks from the Eastern Monarch Butterfly Farm. Visitor can find out more about the importance of planting butterfly host and nectar plants in their gardens to help increase the population of these amazing creatures. Host and nectar plants will be available for sale at the event.

The Native Butterfly Exhibit was made possible by the generous support of Eastern Monarch Butterfly Farm and Gary and Deborah Hill. Admission to Monarch Madness and the Native Butterfly Exhibit is included with paid admission to the Botanical Gardens.
