Summer Series Update: Guided Nature Walk – Saturday September 11th, 10:00 am.

Up next in our 2021 Education Program Summer Series:

Urquhart Butterfly Garden Centennial Park, Dundas


Butterfly & Nature Identification Walk – Matthew Mills


Free Workshop Saturday September 11 at 10 am

Our own staff naturalist Matt Mills will lead our final walk of the year a Guided Nature Walk and tour of the garden. Early fall is a time of change for wildlife in the garden, but there is always plenty to see.


Monarch butterfly migration is underway, and we may see small groups in the garden or migrating overhead. A day with north winds could bring the hawk migration right overhead and insect diversity will be high in the abundant fall flowers.


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 September 11 at 10 am.


You are requested to bring your binoculars & a chair. Be prepared to spend 1 hour in the full
sun of the garden – a hat and sunglasses are helpful. 

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.
