Butterfly gardening, while beautiful and rewarding, can be tricky if the needs of the butterfly in all its life cycle forms aren’t met.
In this class we focus on host plants for the egg and caterpillar stages of various species. We will have demo plants and, when available, actual caterpillars to observe. We will learn how to design and care for a butterfly garden and how to attract multiple species of butterflies.
Tickets are nonrefundable. This class runs rain or shine.
