June Family Garden Spot

Garden Activity Kit

Activity and Book Kits are a great way to bring the month's theme alive at home while supporting the JCRA's Children's Programs.

June's Spotlight Theme—Butterflies

We love our colorful visitors that flutter around the gardens. This month's kit will show you how our fluttering friends go through an amazing life cycle and help you enjoy all the different stages of a butterfly's life.

The June Garden Activity Kit includes a hardcover copy of "The Amazing Life Cycle of Butterflies" by Kay Barnham and illustrated by Maddie Frost, a hardy Dutchman's pipe plant (Aristolochia fimbriata) for all your hungry pipevine swallowtail caterpillars, supplies to create your own caterpillar rearing cage, a butterfly suncatcher craft to enjoy as you wait for butterflies, a butterfly net, and a guide to the most common butterflies seen at the Arboretum.

Kits are available for pickup at the JC Raulston Arboretum in Raleigh, NC during our open hours or can be mailed for an additional $10.00 per kit.

$20.00 per kit, $10.00 for shipping
