Birmingham Butterfly Education and Awareness Day
June 13, 10-2 p.m.
In cooperation with Birmingham Zoo, Ruffner Mountain, Alabama Wildlife Center and McWane Science Center, Birmingham Botanical Gardens presents Birmingham’s Butterfly Education and Awareness Day on June 13. Each year, the Association for Butterflies, a non-profit organization dedicated to the welfare of butterflies through conservation, research and promotion of butterfly gardening and butterfly farmers, celebrates Butterfly Education Awareness Day on the first Saturday of June. This year, four of Birmingham’s most recognizable cultural institutions have chosen the second weekend of the month to bring the same celebration to the Magic City as part of The Gardens’ “Get Into The Gardens” series. The Gardens will also be joined by its friends at Alabama Cooperative Extension System and the Native Plant Group at Birmingham Botanical Gardens.
The event will be held at The Gardens from 10 – 2 p.m. Admission is free.
