Bristow Butterfly Garden: NBG

So continuing my posts about the parts of Botanical Gardens that we love, this is the Butterfly Garden! The 2.5 acre gardens include lots of plants that butterflies love, and a butterfly house where they raise butterflies. Also on the property is a giant butterfly maze. Most people don't realize that it's there, behind the house!
While inside, be sure to grab a sheet and see how many different kinds of butterflies you can spot. Also, check out the back area for examples of caterpillars and talks from butterfly experts. 
We love the gardens for so many reasons, and this is just one of them. It was a perfect day to walk along with a friend and catch up. 

Upcoming NBG events: 
  • Saturday August 18th: VA Honey Bee Festival 
  • Saturday September 29th: Wildlife Rehabilitation Conference
