Butterfly walks are free to members or with Garden admission. Walks will take place the second and fourth Mondays of the month starting at 10 a.m. from June through October. One-hour) and two-hour walks are available. Meet in front of the restrooms across from the entrance to Hamilton Children’s Garden.
