Festival of Butterflies

August 4 – 20

Join us for the annual festival dedicated these winged pollinators. Walk among locally raised, native butterflies in our flower-filled native butterfly tent or journey to the tropics in our lush Conservatory where a close encounter with the Blue Morpho, Golden Birdwing, or Emerald Swallowtail is almost guaranteed. Touch live caterpillars, learn about the life cycle of Monarchs and participate in the Pollinator Parade. New this year, join fantastic flying beasts in our Dragonfly Den, featuring native Missouri dragonflies carefully captured during Dragonfly Day.

Getting ready for events

We’re getting ready for upcoming events. Worked most of the day on a photo display. Not quite finished with it, but it’s getting there. It should be a fun addition to our booth next week.

Our next event is the Summer Fest on Sunday the 25th in Lawrence. It will be at South Park on Mass St, just south of Downtown Lawrence KS.

Come by our booth and get a photo as the Kindness Bug. Hope to see you there!
