Naturalist Matt Mills will be the guide for Butterfly and Nature Identification walk and tour of the garden on Saturday August 6, at 10am.
Matt is an experienced gardener who has spent much time in the Urquhart Butterfly Garden. During this walk he will identify birds, butterflies, insects and the native plants and other plant species in the Garden. Matt will be bringing a selection of organically grown native plants which can be purchased.
“We are heading into midsummer and butterfly diversity should be excellent” observed Matt Mills recently. “Furthermore, we should be able to catch sight of cicadas emerging after their years underground”.
The session is free and open to all, Guests are requested to bring a chair and wear a hat. The event will involve spending 1 hour in the full sun of the garden. The event will be cancelled in the event of rain.
The Urquhart Butterfly Garden is immediately adjacent to Centennial Park and the Hamilton Air Force Association at 128 King St. E in Dundas.
There is plenty of free parking and the location is easily accessible by public transportation or bicycle.
