Dogwood hero-Whats in Bloom


7-9 p.m. Saturday, August 1

This family-friendly event is a great way to explore the "night life" at Powell Gardens while enjoying the butterflies and moths that become active in the evening.

Your family will learn about the Owls, a group of butterflies that fly at dusk, plus the mysterious and often overlooked cousin of the butterfly—the moth. Guides in the Butterfly Breezeway will point out native moths and inside the Martha Jane Phillips Starr Conservatory guests will find exotic cousins such as the African Moon Moth, as well as other intriguing species.

Kids will also enjoy storytelling with Fancy Nancy from 7-8 p.m. and a make-and-take craft. Your ticket includes a serving of Tadley's Home-made Ice Cream! Café Thyme will be selling grilled chicken breasts, burgers, brats, melon cups, soft drinks and bottled water.
