Welcome to the butterfly nook! Here we'll keep you updated on the progress of our butterfly garden as well as regular features on the different species we have flying around the garden!
With the introduction of crown flowers to the garden we are aiming to attract monarchs to the garden and hopefully grow our butterfly garden. Planting a collection of the right host plants will be the key to a successful butterfly nook!
Find out more about the Friends' plan to create a Butterfly Garden around Amy's house and to help the Kamehameha Butterly, one of Hawai'i's endemic species, to thrive again.
In Amy Greenwell's backyard we now have a growing community of Monarch butterfly caterpillars!
