Adopting Caterpillars as a Family

Each child will have his or her own caterpillar to feed, grow, and turn into a butterfly. Materials include: Craft and caterpillar. Bring your own approved butterfly cage or rent one of ours.
Butterfly Garden at Eastwood Preserve
Each family will receive three caterpillars to watch transform into beautiful butterflies. Eastwood Preserve has established a butterfly garden which contains the necessary milkweed plants. This will help guarantee the return of the Monarch Butterfly to the Eastwood Preserve and strengthen the population of the species. Bring your own butterfly cage or rent one of ours.
Throughout the "Butterfly" season, Mrs. Ellen and many other people, have released approximately 80 butterflies at the Eastwood Preserve. We hope that this is a great start to bringing back Monarchs to the Eastwood Preserve and to the local area.
