Hallberg Butterfly Gardens, a 501 c 3 corporation, formed to educate the public about butterflies and preserve habitat was created by Louise Hallberg, who recently passed away at 100 years old.
As per her wishes, faithful volunteer docents continue to welcome local school children and adults for guided tours by appointment from April through October, Wednesdays through Sundays.
Our 20th Open Gardens Celebration will be held 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. All are invited to come and learn about the butterfly life cycle, wildlife gardening, and habitat preservation. No RSVP needed.
There will be displays of local butterflies, their host and nectar plants and native wildflowers. Guests are invited to tour the nine acres of habitat gardens. Docents will be accessible to guide you and help with bird, dragonfly and butterflies identifications
Butterfly-attracting plants will be for sale, including Dutchman's Pipevine, host plant for the Pipevine Swallowtail butterfly. Other host and nectar plants will also be for sale. A staffed kids' table is sure to be busy with craft making and origami instruction will be available. Books, crafts, drinks and souvenirs are always popular.
