$20 member / $35 nonmember (per person)
Instructor: Kelsey Low
Ages 12 and up

This class has SOLD OUT. Check out our next Plants & Gardening class – Native Plant Gardening: Wetland Natives!

Raise a butterfly – save the world! Did you know that growing plants for caterpillars is one of the most important things you can do to help the environment? In this class you’ll learn why butterfly host plants make such a difference and what species you should grow in your garden. You’ll even get a detailed plant list with names, growing conditions, and butterfly species hosted!

Weather permitting, we will go on a short hike to look for host plants – please dress for the weather and wear walking shoes.

The Arboretum grounds, including the trails and Nature Playscape, will REOPEN on Thursday, July 18! All classes and events through Sunday, July 21 have been cancelled, and the Nature Center building remains closed at this time.
