the project

We are creating a mobile walk-through exhibit that allows visitors to interact with hundreds of butterflies flying freely. Vistors can witness all stages of their lifecycle from tiny eggs, to hungry caterpillar, to pupa.

They are able to hand feed the butterflies, learn about the butterfly life cycle and experience watching butterflies in a unique environment.

the steps

  • Gather educational material
  • Raise funding
  • Seek out Volunteeers
  • Contact Community Gardens to hold the exhibit

why we're doing it

Our projects accomplish two things: they help educate the community on the importance of butterflies and, by releasing the butterflies, we help pollinate the community gardens.
