2022 Urquhart Butterfly Garden Summer Photo Contest

The 2022 Urquhart Butterfly Garden Summer Photo Contest kicks off on June 6th and runs through Labour Day Weekend to September 6th.

Photographers of all ages are eligible for cash awards in four categories:

  • Butterflies and Moths
  • Insects, Spiders and Bugs
  • Birds and other Wildlife
  • Plants & Flowers

Fancy Camera equipment is not needed.  Many great photos have been taken with cell phones.  What is required is patience and a good eye for an interesting photograph.

The Urquhart Butterfly Garden is full of life!  Butterflies are already being seen daily, including Monarchs and Mourning Cloaks.  Look closely and you may see young rabbits, garter snakes sunning themselves, and tiny voles popping out between the rocks.

Between June 6th and September 6th when you visit the Garden you will see a variety of beautiful flowers and plants which support the lives of butterflies, insects and birds.

The Photo Contest begins June 6th and ends September 6th.  Entry information and rules will be available at the Urquhart Butterfly Garden or can be viewed on the Urquhart Butterfly Garden website at: https://urquhartbutterfly.com

The Urquhart Butterfly Garden is located between Centennial Park and Canal Park at the end of the Desjardins Canal.  Parking is available on King Street East at the entrance to the Garden.
