Butterfly Talk: Creating Your Butterfly Nursery

Gardening for Butterflies

Preparing for a butterfly “baby” (caterpillar) is much easier than preparing for a human baby. At this talk, you’ll learn how to prepare your “nursery” (garden) for the next generation of beautiful butterflies. No experience? No problem. We’ll walk you through the basics, including what butterflies will lay eggs on, what the caterpillars need to eat and how to support their parents.

This program is included in general admission and free for Heard Museum Members. Designed primarily for adults. Interested youth may attend with an adult. May not be suitable for children younger than 10 years.
