Big Butterfly Count

9:30am — 5:00pm


Would you like to have fun and contribute to conservation efforts at the same time?

Join us in the gardens between Friday, July 12th, and Sunday, August 4th for the Big Butterfly Count.

Spend just 15 minutes observing butterflies and moths, and then record the species you see. This nationwide citizen science survey helps us track butterfly populations, which are not only beautiful but also crucial pollinators and key components of the food chain. The data collected will help identify important trends, aiding in the protection of butterflies from extinction and enhancing our understanding of climate change's impact on wildlife.
