FMS Butterfly Station Program opening on July 21; runs until August 12

The Butterfly Station at Farnsworth Middle School will be open this summer, July 21 – August 12, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Guided tours are conducted daily, with the last tour beginning at 12:30 p.m., and include the butterfly garden, the metamorphosis room and the butterfly catching adventure. Join us on Friday, August 13 at 11 a.m., for the Butterfly Release Celebration, as we release the butterflies into the wild!

Free to all visitors, the Butterfly Station is a student-run, community service program designed to educate about the Albany Pine Bush Preserve and the importance of butterflies to our local habitat.

Because the Butterfly Station is located inside FMS, face masks are required for the indoor portion of the tour. For more information, click here.
