Painted Lady Hatch & Release

Saturday, March 23, 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. 

Participate in the Conservatory’s “Hatch & Release” program by purchasing a butterfly kit and growing the caterpillar to adulthood. You can stop by the Botanical Conservatory’s booth at the Fort Wayne Home & Garden Show, February 28-March 3 to access kits and learn more about butterfly gardening, or visit the Conservatory Gift Shop starting March 5. The butterfly’s lifecycle is a process of four stages: egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, and adult. You can celebrate your butterfly’s emergence by releasing it into the Conservatory’s Tropical Garden. Whether you have a butterfly ready for release or not, the public is welcome to visit and learn about the Painted Lady, native butterflies, and butterfly gardening. If temperatures are warm enough, your butterfly can be released outdoors! Included in regular admission. For more information, call (260) 427-6445.

Location Botanical Conservatory, 1100 S. Calhoun St.
