Interested in trading your time for a festival experience you’ll never forget? Camp Discovery is looking for volunteers to help with the Blythewood Butterfly Festival on May 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.. All proceeds from the Festival will benefit the nature-based programs at Camp Discovery. From preparations leading up to the event to the event day itself, we are searching for people to lend a helping hand.
The 2017 Blythewood Butterfly Festival will offer a day of fun and celebration honoring nature’s most beautiful pollinator, the butterfly. A Festival highlight is a large walk-in butterfly tent “The Butterfly Experience”- filled with live butterflies and flowers. Other special features will include a Caterpillar Petting Zoo where guests can follow the life cycle of a butterfly; a Storybook Garden featuring an appearance from The Very Hungry Caterpillar; butterfly face painting and balloon art; a pollinator parade, local artisans showcasing butterfly and conservation-minded crafts; family photo station, pollinator coloring garden, hands-on, make and take crafts for kids, and more! Volunteers sign up for 3 to 4 hour shifts. In return, volunteers receive entrance to the butterfly tent, a t-shirt, and an amazing opportunity to learn, serve and be part of an incredible experience!
If you are interested in helping out along with the chance to meet and work with some really great people; please sign up today!
