Bring the Butterflies to You!

Get beyond the catalog descriptions of which plants will attract butterflies, and learn real-life lessons in gardening for our winged beauties from one of New Jersey's most active and knowledgeable butterfly enthusiasts. Sharon Wander along with her husband, Wade, frequently lead field trips and present programs for the North American Butterfly Association (NABA).

Sharon is Director of the NABA Butterfly Count Program, which coordinates more than 450 annual counts in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. She and Wade have compiled the Springdale, NJ, Fourth of July butterfly count since 1992, and are especially proud of their own butterfly garden which has attracted the largest number of species in the state.

A colorful and dynamic digital presentation will be followed by a walk looking for late butterflies in The Frelinghuysen Arboretum’s gardens and fields.
