On Sunday, July 26, beginning at 2:00 p.m. CDT, Friendship Botanic Gardens will host a FREE educational program dedicated to monarch  butterflies. Families will have the chance to learn about the life cycle of monarch butterflies and how they can personally assist in boosting the butterfly populations from landscape horticulturist and monarch butterfly expert, Dolly Foster. 


Individuals in attendance can experience live butterflies through a monarch butterfly release near the Butterfly Garden. Children will also be able to create butterfly-themed arts and crafts. This is the first event in the free eco-adventures summer series, with the Bug Safari following on Sunday, August 23, from 2:00-4:00 p.m. 


For the butterfly presentation and craft station for children, chairs and tables will be distanced. We encourage you to bring your own hand sanitizer and practice social distancing. We also recommend the use of masks.
