A Butterfly Flutter is a children’s event scattered throughout the Cockrell Butterfly Center and courtyard. Your “caterpillars” will enjoy papilio arts and crafts, metamorphic face painting, creative cookie decorating, a bug-centric treasure hunt and so much more. Of course, there will be “nectar” to drink and “munchies” to keep the whole family’s wings fluttering! Funds from A Butterfly Flutter support the operating budget of the Cockrell Butterfly Center and enrich educational programs at HMNS.
