Students in grades 2 through 4 from Fayetteville, Springdale and Greenland schools will be entertained and educated as they rotate through eight learning stations developed and presented by Botanical Garden of the Ozarks volunteers three days this month.

The stations have been designed to teach children about the life cycles of butterflies and caterpillars and their relationships to host and nectar plants. The volunteers have created fun, active stations that incorporate games, hands-on activities, stories, tours and state standards.

This year, one of the stations will be the new Butterfly Pavilion. Students will get to visit the house and view native butterflies and caterpillars, surrounded by the nectar and host plants that they love.

Dates: September 20, 22 and 23, 2011
Time: 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
