When people think “butterfly host plants” they tend to think of milkweed, but there is a whole world of host plants to choose from. In this class we’ll discuss some of our local butterfly species and the plants their caterpillars crave, including flowers, trees, vines, and even grasses. We’ll also go on a walk to explore host plants at the Arboretum.

Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.
