Orange County Parks invites children and families to learn all about Monarch Butterflies and their natural habitat with an up-close look at the magnificent creatures at the fourth annual Monarch Butterfly Day event at Mile Square Park!

The free event takes place in the Butterfly Garden inside the park’s Camp Sycamore located near parking lot E. Children can assist in planting more than 150 native plants to attract Monarch Butterflies. Participants can also go inside a netted butterfly enclosure.

Butterfly experts will be on-site to provide educational information and answer questions about the beautiful and unique specimens.

Additional activities include interpretive programs, children’s crafts, face painting, a balloon artist and guided nature walks. Each child will receive native seeds to plant in the butterfly garden or take home and plant to continue to help build safe habitats for Monarch Butterflies and other creatures.
Recommended for ages four to 12.
