Volunteer: Gardening for Butterflies Session 1

10/25/2023 10:00 AM - 01:00 PM PT


  • Free


Red Mill Farm Preserve


Come and join us as we put plants in the ground that will hopefully provide food and habitat for next year's batch of Island Marble Butterflies.


Help us plug some host plants and weed out unwanted ones in the Preservation Trust's habitat plots created for the Island Marble Butterfly on San Juan Island. You’ll learn loads about the butterfly, current management strategies, and results of some of the fascinating research currently underway on this highly rare and endemic species.

This is the first of two sessions, both held on the same day.

  • Date: Wednesday, 10/25/2023
  • Time: 10:00am–1:00pm
  • Location: Various locations around San Juan Island. Meet at Red Mill Farm.
  • Bring: Work gloves, water (tools, equipment, and treats provided)
  • Leader: SJPT Special Projects Director Kathleen Lewis
