Come visit the Trailside Nature & Science Butterfly Garden. All the plants in this garden have been selected to provide a food source for butterflies and caterpillars. Attracting butterflies involves using plants that serve the needs of all life stages of the butterfly. The insects need places to lay eggs, food plants for caterpillars, a place for the chrysalis to form and nectar sources for adults. Additional information on butterfly gardening can be found in the Visitor Center.
