Celebrate life and remember loved ones
Join Goodell Gardens on Saturday, August 27 at 3 pm as we release monarch butterflies as a way to celebrate life and honor those we’ve lost.
Held during the perfect time for their southerly migration, this event celebrates monarchs while giving attendees the opportunity to release a butterfly – along with their wishes – into the sky.
Purchase a butterfly to release in honor or memory of a loved one, or simply to experience the magic of the monarch.
Butterflies will be locally and ethically sourced from a farm, which reserves the right to substitute other species in the rare event that monarchs are not available.
Buy your tickets by July 15 to guarantee you’ll have a butterfly to release.
Proceeds benefit Goodell Gardens & Homestead – a nonprofit organization.
