There will be lots of activities for butterfly enthusiasts of all ages including nature displays, interactive exhibits, and face painting and so much more. Guests are encouraged to come dressed in their best butterfly costume!

Our guest speakers will be here to educate and entertain all those looking to hear about butterflies, wildflowers and other pollinators! Learn how to plant your own pollinator garden, discover all there is to know about the iconic Monarch Butterfly, and go on a journey along The Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail.
