Friendship Botanic Gardens will host a special free educational program dedicated to everyone’s favorite pollinator pals: butterflies! Horticulturalist Dolly Foster will discuss butterfly gardening, pollinator conservation, and how you can attract these beautiful “flying flowers” to your own backyard! This is a remarkable opportunity for families to learn how to help boost butterfly populations through hands-on citizen science.
Audiences can experience live butterflies up-close as we release newly hatched monarchs into our specially designed butterfly garden. Children can make and take home free butterfly crafts.
