Wings of Change

The thunder of hoof beats, smell of gunpowder, and clouds of smoke filled air are gone. In their place you'll find the flutter of butterfly wings and the smell of wildflowers filling the air. The clouds of dark gunpowder smoke have been replaced by a colorful colored carpet of purples, reds, and yellow blooms.

More and more, people are coming to the park for the butterfly watching opportunities it provides. The next time you visit the park, remember to pack your binoculars. See how many species you can check off our butterfly checklist.
