Frog Festival

Fabulous frogs fill the summer nights with song, and the Butterfly House is throwing a festival in their honor! There will be games, frog walks, face painting, live animal encounters, and “meet and greets” with Finn the Frog. Kids will even get to take home a “frog calling” kit, so they can join the chorus in their own backyards! Join us as we celebrate the amazing things frogs can do and learn how we can protect them around our neighborhoods! For families with kids of all ages and adults that are kids at heart!
