Adopting Caterpillars as a Family


Join Miss Ellen as we explore the wonderful world of butterflies. We'll visit Eastwood Preserve and look for different butterflies, caterpillars, and their favorite flowers. 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.


Program Progress


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.
