The Butterfly Sanctuary is a unique experience that is both beautiful and educational. Its mission is to create an environment where butterflies can thrive. It is home to the Monarch Butterfly Species and is recognized by Habitat for Humanity as the Habitat of the Year for 2021.
Visitors can enjoy the butterfly sanctuary by strolling through its native plants. Visitors can also enjoy fun activities such as the Old School Herbal Academy and Culinary Delights from the Herb Garden. In addition to the Butterfly Sanctuary, visitors can also enjoy the park’s outdoor classroom and working beehive.
Butterflies & Blooms in the briar patch is also a Certified Monarch Way Station. It is open all year long and offers guided tours, nature photography and native plant sales. Virginia Linch suggests that visitors use a macro lens when photographing the caterpillars and butterflies. Also, visitors should avoid wearing perfumes or bug repellent to avoid getting stung.
The native pollinator habitat has been created to provide a safe and healthy environment for butterfly larvae and nectar-based habitat. The facility is open to the public dawn to dusk seven days a week, including holidays. Visiting the habitat is free. Visitors are encouraged to help the butterflies by pulling crab grass and clearing the trail. The park is also pet-friendly.
