The 6th Annual Butterfly Festival of the University of Tennessee Association will be available online on Saturday, September 18th.
This year’s Butterfly Festival will once again be imagined with children’s talks and special video programs, the news release said.
The festival will air live at 10 a.m. and will be available for viewing at your convenience. You can register by emailing links to these free programs at www.utarboretumsociety.org. Registration is required for this event. These programs are registered and closed captions are available.
The event was co-sponsored by the U.S. Agricultural Institute. In 2019, it became one of the most popular events of the year with over 2,000 people attending. Due to uncertainty over COVID-19 precautions, this year’s festival has already been filmed. It will be a different holiday as there are no activities on site, but we are happy to bring some good online options to the public. ”
To celebrate the spirit of the festival, the Uttar Pradesh Society has invited people to catch and decorate wooden butterflies. These butterflies are seen around the tourist center throughout September.
We invite you to enjoy this show every time you visit the arbor in September.
Special presentations for children will be provided by Jerome Grant and students of the Department of Etology and Plant Pathology of UT.
Educational Lectures for the 2021 UTAS Butterfly Festival –
- “From Biodiversity and Butterflies – Planting and Preservation of Flower Design” by Michael Ross. As more productive butterfly habitats have been transformed into habitats, farms, and businesses, the need for well-designed landscapes to support the entire life cycle of Lepidoptera species is becoming increasingly important. This approach explains key ideas, designs, and planning goals for successful pollen housing implementation. Ross is an associate professor of sustainable landscape design and an assistant professor in landscape architecture at UT’s Department of Plant Science.
- “Principles of Butterfly Garden Design and Management: A Case Study in Polinner Habita Garden Management” by Olivia Sever Ross. Housewife Johnson Introduction to Pollen Habitat at the Wildflower Center presents a case study that explains the best practices for butterfly garden management in a residential area. Before becoming an architect, Ross trained Anne and Oje Webber, a flower gardener and Lepidoptera at the Johnson Wildlife Center, and helped Luchi and Ian plant a family garden.
