Join us for the 2nd Annual Monarch Butterfly Festival on September 26th at Bob Jones Nature Center and Preserve! Come learn about these beautiful creatures and participate in your very own butterfly release!
What to Expect
On the day of the event, we’ll be releasing hundreds of Monarch Butterflies into the wild and interacting with them first-hand. But, don’t worry--there won’t be hundreds of people! We’ve split the event into sessions limited to only 40 people each, so you and your family can feel comfortable and safe as you enjoy the morning at the Nature Preserve.
When You Arrive...
Your group will be escorted to your private station where you’ll find all the supplies you’ll need to properly prepare your butterfly for release. We’ll have fun goodies for both kids and adults to enjoy as well as a how-to video to explain everything you need to know. So, make yourself comfortable, and get ready to meet your sleeping beauty!
Share the Memories
We know you’ll be taking lots of photos and videos, and we’d love for you to share them with us! Tag #SLKButterfly in your social media posts or join our project, and you just might see your photos/videos featured on our channels!
