Ocean Isle Beach, NC – Many natural butterfly habitats have been lost to urban sprawl as a result of construction of homes, roads and businesses. This has led to a decline in butterfly populations, with many species of butterflies being classified as endangered. Planting a butterfly garden is an easy way to attract more butterflies and help increase the number and variety of butterflies in your neighborhood.
At 11 a.m. Saturday, February 22, Maria Knapik will show how easily you can plan and plant a butterfly garden in your own yard. The program will include an activity that children can take home with them to start their own butterfly garden.
The Museum of Coastal Carolina is located at 21 East Second Street, Ocean Isle Beach. Admission is free for members, active duty military and disabled veterans plus one guest (must include military ID cardholder). Non-member all-day admission is $9.50 for adults, $8.50 for seniors, $7.50 for children (3-12), and free for ages 2 and under.
