Hawthorne Valley Open Hours for Butterfly House, Native Plant Garden and Trail

The Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology Program is welcoming visitors to its seasonal butterfly house, native plant garden, and short nature trail this Friday and Saturday.

Guided tours of the butterfly house will be offered on the hour, while guided tours of the native plant garden will be offered on the ½ hour. Visitors are also invited for self-guided exploration during opening hours; a kiosk and new signage on pollinators and plants provides information to enrich such exploration.

The butterfly house is stocked before with butterfly guests from the surrounding farm which are then released again back into the wild. Come view the “catch of the week” (weather dependent), search for the flowers in bloom, and enjoy a small, stream-side “phenology trail” where certain plants are monitored.

DATE/TIME: Friday, July 30, 2021 / 1 – 4pm
Saturday, July 31 / 10am – 1pm

No registration required

LOCATION: Hawthorne Valley Farmscape Ecology Program Creekhouse

One thought on “Hawthorne Valley Open Hours for Butterfly House, Native Plant Garden and Trail”

  1. Hi, this sounds lovely, as does the Hawthorne Valley Association.

    I’m a native of the east coast, currently living in southern California, and looking for someplace in NY state to live for a few years while I take some time to write my books, though I may also be open to teaching (my MAT is in mathematics, but I’ve also taught Adult High School, Spanish, and Biblical Hebrew, and would be willing to do so again if a community has that need). I’m particularly interested in Ghent, as it seems to be a progressive town, small, quiet, and affordable.

    If you can recommend any Bed and Breakfast (entirely smoke-free, do to smoke-triggered asthma…) looking for long-ish term visitors in November, I would greatly appreciate it.

    Best regards,
    Shira Destinie Jones
