Discovery Corner: Butterflies and Moths—Botanical Conservatory, June 27th, 10:30 am – 12:30 pm.

On the fourth Saturday, our volunteers staff a special table for kids with crafts in that month’s theme suitable for pre-K through 1st grade. The table activities are free with general admission and pre-registration is not required. While you’re there, visit Butterflies: A Bug’s Eye View. The showcase will continue until July 5th.
