Experience the wonder as the warmth of your hand awakens dormant Monarch and Painted lady butterflies. This will be Blackacre’s second annual butterfly release and we are pleased to invite you to join us. We will begin the afternoon with a brief explanation of butterflies, their life cycle and habitat from one of our volunteer naturalists. Followed by a discussion of their important roll in pollinating the plants in your garden and some tips and tricks on how to attract these beautiful creatures to your backyard.
All registered participants will be given a butterfly at this time to release into our butterfly garden. You must R.S.V.P. for this event in order to receive a butterfly as numbers are limited. Don’t forget to bring your cameras! Rain date for this event is Sunday July 2oth.
