Returning is the best part of the program. One of the first projects started in the first class was a garden tour. Butterfly gardens are a favorite of many gardeners. The main gardeners will continue to take care of their display garden at sunset. Provides live display throughout the year. Earth Day is a special occasion for gardeners to grow and provide butterfly milk and other butterfly-loving plants and information.
