On Saturday, July 30th MacArthur Park will be holding a butterfly walk.
The walk will take guests through one of South Florida's last remaining hardwood hammocks and will feature several species of butterflies to observe and identify. In addition, those participating will be able to learn what plants attract which species of butterflies to their backyard. The walk begins at 11am and is free with park admission, although a reservation is required. Guests should bring binoculars or they can rent them from the gift shop.
MacArthur Park is situated between the Atlantic Ocean and the Lake Worth Lagoon on the northen end of Singer Island. The Park is 438 acres of natural environments, including seven species of plants and twenty-two species of animals designated as endangered or threatened. The park hosts a wide variety of nature walks, classes, and events.
