Butterfly Days 2019 at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks is an enriching and memorable experience for all!
When: Thursday and Friday, October 3rd and 4th. (Rain date is Tuesday, October 8th)

Who: School groups in 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade
Cost: $80 per class
Each session will feature six – seven learning stations. BGO volunteers will be leading child-centered activities on topics like monarchs, butterfly life-cycles, structures & functions of these insects and more. Lessons will touch on Common Core and hit some Next Generation Science Standards. Class price includes teachers and aides.
All parents are welcome to enjoy the garden at the $7 admission fee on field trip days but we kindly ask that only two accompany classes as parent-chaperones (if requested by the teacher) to prevent overcrowding of the teaching area. Admission may be paid in the admissions office where parents can learn, shop and begin exploring the garden while the field trip is conducted.
Peak Butterfly Season is September 24th through October 12th. Butterfly Themed field trips can be scheduled during this time by contacting the Education Director, Amber Ebbrecht at firstname.lastname@example.org or (479) 750-2620.
