Butterflies & Milkweed

Monarch Butterflies are severely threatened with loss of habitat and the decline of wild milkweed that they must have to survive.  At the center, the Cat Crew volunteers feed perhaps 50 caterpillars a day to raise butterflies for the Butterfly Pavilion.   At the pavilion you can see chrysalids, caterpillars and emerging butterflies!  Page down to order milkweed seeds.
