New activities and fun will be added each year so check it out!
Monarch Tag & Release Party
This is our annual monarch tagging event with a little extra. Each individual gets to tag their own butterfly to journey south for the winter while learning about the great migration, the butterfly life cycle and their importance to the environment. We have refreshments, activities for the kids and sampling of pawpaws from our grove.
