Kathy Stevens, Brookside Gardens Staff

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn how to raise butterflies at home by closely examining all the life stages using specimens at Brookside Gardens. We will go behind the scenes to learn how exhibit staff maintain healthy butterflies. Discussion will cover parasites and diseases along with rearing techniques used in conservation. Butterfly and plant relationships in the garden will also be observed and discussed so that students will better understand how butterflies behave in every season and survive from year to year in our area.
