Educating our greater community is the first essential part of our mission. We currently provide the following educational activities that can be customized for all age groups and levels of interest.

Butterfly Walks

Join us March through October on a butterfly walk where we will help you with identification skills of butterflies, host and nectar plants. Walks are held at parks, nature preserves, or botanical gardens.


We offer classes for both children and adults. Class structure and content can be customized to suit your group or organization’s needs and interests. Classes can be held at your location or at Backyard Butterflies.


We offer Power Point presentations on a variety of butterfly related topics. Length and content of our presentations can be adjusted to meet your needs. You will need to provide AV euipment. We can also bring live butterflies to the presentation if available.


Our Raise-a-Caterpillar workshop will show you how to successfully raise a Black Swallowtail caterpillar into a butterfly. We can conduct workshops at your location or at Backyard Butterflies. Workshops are available for all age groups.

Backyard Butterflies

Our online plant shop has closed for the 2020 season. We will be back in April 2021 with new and familiar host and nectar plants.
