Come join us for our annual Butterfly Day hosted at Big Bloomers Flower Farm in Sanford! We will have our usual set-up and display, conduct a free caterpillar raising workshop (normally $25), and give a talk about creating your own backyard butterfly habitat. We will also do a butterfly release in the afternoon if we have them available.
No registration is necessary. Caterpillar availability for workshops is subject to Mother Nature. The workshop is conducted on a first-come, first-serve basis, unless there are more people than available caterpillars. We will then do a lottery drawing.
In addition to the workshops and talks, there will be butterfly DIY crafts and activities for kids and adults.
Big Bloomers has a vast assortment of butterfly nectar and host plants, and is the primary nursery we have used since 2012 to create our backyard habitat. They have multiple species of milkweed that is caterpillar safe!
