They key to attracting butterflies is understanding their life cycle. Adult female butterflies seek out specific host plants on which to lay their eggs. These eggs hatch into "very hungry caterpillars." As you may recall from The Very Hungry Caterpillar storybook, caterpillars eat large amounts of plants so they can complete metamorphosis and emerge as beautiful butterflies.
During our class, you'll learn which plants attract certain butterfly species, and how to grow and care for these plants. Our speaker will also tell us how to identify common butterflies found in Stanislaus County.
