Butterfly Gardens
Managed By: Icon Here Pollinators
Description:
Butterfly gardens aim to create an environment through the planting of specific plants and flowers to attract butterflies. Each garden is unique and this category seeks to find and catalog each garden.
Expanded Description:

Butterfly gardens only will be accepted here. While there are other types of similar gardens, this category will be exclusively for those gardens whose main purpose is for attracting butterflies. Some gardens do have a dual purpose but as long at one of the chief purposes is to attract butterflies, and that can be proven, those gardens will also be accepted here.

Instructions for Posting a Butterfly Gardens Waymark:

To post a waymark here, a long description is mandatory including the size, location and as much information about the different types of flora being used to attract the butterflies. Almost always this information is available on a nearby interpretive. A picture of the interpretive is required. If no interpretive is available, include a link to the owning entities website clearly documenting the purpose of the garden.

Many of these special gardens are dedicated to an individual or entity. This information must be listed and a picture of the plaque clearly showing the text must also be included.

These gardens must be outside and public not private. An address or close approximation must be included as well as accurate coordinates.

Please make every effort to waymark in spring or summer when the flora is most active. A minimum of two pictures of the garden is required, not including pictures of interpretives or dedication plaques and markers.

Suggested Naming Convention:
Aquarium Butterfly Garden - Camden, NJ
