McIntire Botanical Garden Butterfly Walks……

It’s almost prime time for butterfly season !!  Join Master Naturalist Nancy Weiss on a walk through McIntire Park east’s rolling hills, forests and fields to look for and identify the butterflies of the Piedmont region of Virginia.  Enjoy exploring the park and seeing what species we might find there at different times throughout the summer months.

“The walks will be informal and educational. I plan to talk about life style and host plants of whatever we see,”  Nancy said.

Sundays, June 21st, July 26th,  & August 23rd at 2:00 pm

Details & starting points will be sent out in June

To register contact:  Lesley E. Sewell @ sewellhorticulture@gmail.com.– Rain cancels.




MBG is very pleased to be in partnership with the City of Charlottesville in the design process for McIntire Park East as we prepare for the opening of our Botanical Garden in 2016.

We appreciate your support for the building of a beautiful public garden for all of our citizens to enjoy.  Thank you!
