Butterflies have been described as an inexhaustible of spiritual and aesthetic delight. They have a practical value as well. We all love sunlight, and we owe many glorious and sweet-scented flowers, at least those of long tubular form, to the butterflies and moths that pollinate them. This is a wonderful opportunity for Friends to observe these elusive creatures in the Gardens. Join our local expert, Dr. Suzi Bond, to see and hear about butterflies and the plants they like.
 
It will be an easy walk.
 
Copies of the Field Guide to the Butterflies of the Australian Capital Territory by Suzi Bond with Steve Holliday and John Stein are available at the Botanical Bookshop in the Gardens Visitor Centre.
