BUTTERFLY EXPLORATION AT OLBRICH GARDENS

Butterflies are an essential part of plant growth. They pollinate our favorite plants and help to grow the food that we eat. Learn more about their life cycle, how they pollinate, and where to find them in a garden with the Olbrich Garden’s staff. We will talk about which butterflies are native to Wisconsin and what they need to thrive here. You can even learn how to feed butterflies at home!
