Bloomapalooza 2010

June 1, 2010 at 6:58 pm Leave a comment

Memorial weekend started off with a big hit here at the Butterfly Pavilion with Bloomapalooza in which we celebrated Plant Conservation Day. There was a full day of events that included seed planting, a HUGE rock wall (one that I did not participate in), an inflatable obstacle course, crafts, live music and workshops for the parents. The weather was perfect and I am sure that everyone that took part in the plant relay races enjoyed jumping around in potato sacks, I know I had a lot of fun.

Two of the biggest successes of the day was the butterfly garden that was planted and the native wildflowers that were planted along the nature trial. With help from the Butterfly Pavilion Staff and Volunteers visitors were given the chance to throw seed balls (a ball of mud with wildflower seeds) and plant plants along the sidewalk leading up to the Butterfly Pavilion. Hopefully this new garden will attract local butterfly species and add some colorful flowers to enjoy.

If you missed all the fun at Bloompalooza doesn’t worry there is Insectival; an insect carnival on July 10 and 11.

The "make your own trail mix station was a huge hit. Thank Whole Foods.
