Summer Series Update: Guided Butterfly & Nature Walk. Saturday, August 28th at 10 am.

Urquhart Butterfly Garden

Centennial Park, Dundas

Butterfly & Nature Identification Walk

Matthew Mills

Free Workshop Saturday August 28th at 10 am

Our own staff naturalist Matt Mills will guide a Butterfly and Nature Identification walk and tour of the garden. Late summer is an excellent time to view a diversity of butterflies in the Urquhart Butterfly Garden. 

Monarch numbers begin to build as they stage for migration, good numbers of summering species are still on the wing and rare butterflies blown north on summer heat waves are possible. Bird migration begins in earnest in late August so we will watch for movement overhead and new visitors in the garden.

The session is open to all, and you will leave with a new knowledge and understanding of the wonderful diversity of wildlife at the Urquhart Butterfly Garden.  Saturday August 28 at 10 am.

You are requested to bring a chair and wear a hat. We will spend 1 hour in the full sun of the garden. The event will be cancelled in the event of rain.

The Urquhart Butterfly Garden is immediately adjacent to Centennial Park and the Hamilton Air Force Association at 128 King St. E in Dundas.

There is plenty of free parking and the location is easily accessible by public transportation or bicycle.

Funded by the Dougher Fund of the Hamilton Community Foundation
