Come by the Discovery Center and visit our Pollinator Garden! We currently, have a Monarch Butterfly Exhibit and we have already released 8 butterflies! On your visit, take a peek at our Milkweed and see if you can find any caterpillars. If you find any, bring them inside to our exhibit so we can watch them make their chrysalis and metamorphize into a butterfly! If there are butterflies in our exhibit, with the help of one of our team members, you can release a Monarch back into our Pollinator Garden!
