Join the zoo’s curator of horticulture, Mike Davenport, for a tour highlighting plants that support local butterfly populations. Learn how to easily grow host and nectar plants that will transform a sunny patch into a vibrant, butterfly-friendly space. Participants will receive a plant list with butterfly associations as well as information on where to purchase plants. Bring conservation to your own backyard or windowbox!
