Butterfly Garden Walks
Enjoy the large, 1/4 acre Butterfly Garden at Hagerman NWR with garden docents on hand to help you identify the Texas native plants and the butterflies in the garden. Special activities for families available: scavenger hunts, meet the Metamorphosis Puppet and more. The garden is free of charge and open to the public from sunrise to sunset everyday of the year; garden walk events are scheduled periodically from April through October. Come alone or bring the family.
In the fall, the garden walks may include Monarch Tagging, where the kids get to see the monarchs close up and some may get a chance to let it touch them before it takes off. Check back in September/October for this opportunity.
New volunteer garden docents are always welcome and training is provided: simply attend a scheduled Butterfly Docent Meeting, or Contact Us for more information.
