Please make plans to join us for this very special in-person event where we can safely gather together, see and learn about butterflies, and spend time in butterfly fellowship. The NHSM Lep Club will be the only visitors in the park for this special after hours event. Bring a picnic dinner.

The Butterfly House at Ladew is an all native butterfly house. Ladew staff, interns and trained volunteers gently net butterflies and moths on Ladew’s grounds and place them inside the Butterfly House where they have all that they need to live complete life cycles. This means that we are able to showcase not only butterflies and moths, but also eggs, caterpillars, chrysalis and cocoons! In addition to highlighting these beautiful insects, the plants that they rely on are also integral to this exhibit.

ADDRESSL Ladew Gardens, 3535 Jarrettsville Pike, Monkton, MD 21111
