Butterfly Garden

 

 

Come and enjoy the quiet of the garden anytime.  Weed when you have a few minutes or just smell the flowers.We do try to have the garden looking its best, for whatever time of year it is, especially when we know that we will have visitors to the park. School groups, scout groups and adult volunteers help with the garden throughout the year.

“B-Garden Blitz” days are scheduled just before any expected event day at the park. 

2012 B-Garden Blitz Schedule:

8 a.m. -10 a.m. every date

Tuesday and Saturday, April 3 and April 7 in preparation for Easter Sunrise Service.  (which is Sun. April 8)

Easter Sunrise Service is often held at the Marina and the Butterfly Garden is passed on the way to services.

Our busiest days of the year are Memorial Day and the Fourth of July when the park is the most popular. Labor Day is another family time at the park.

Fall clean-up and putting the garden to bed.

During 2007 and 2008, we re-vamped the old garden, giving it a new look (6824 & 4959) But, not much interest from the butterflies and caring for it in the woods was not very successful.
