Open Hours for Butterfly House, Native Plant Garden and Trail

Saturday, July 24, 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology Program is welcoming visitors to its seasonal butterfly house, native plant garden, and short nature trail.

Admission is free; no registration required.

Guided tours of the butterfly house will be offered on the hour, while guided tours of the native plant garden will be offered on the ½ hour. Visitors are also invited for self-guided exploration during opening hours; a kiosk and new signage on pollinators and plants provides information to enrich such exploration.

The butterfly house is stocked before each Friday with butterfly guests from the surrounding farm which are then release again back into the wild. Come view the “catch of the week” (weather dependent), search for the flowers in bloom (featured weekly on the information kiosk), and enjoy a small, stream-side “phenology trail” where we monitor certain plants.
