Plum Creek Nature Center is helping pollinators by rearing monarch caterpillars in a safe environment. Each day, nature center staff will tag and release any butterflies that have emerged from their chrysalides. What a thrilling experience to take part in a monarch’s first flight! Visit the nature center to see the caterpillars in their various life stages. A naturalist will be on hand to answer all your butterfly questions and give great pointers on how to make your yard attractive to butterflies.
