Dragonfly & Butterfly Bash

Saturday, September 18, 2021, 4:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Discover the wonderful world of butterflies at Chandler's annual Dragonfly & Butterfly Bash, Saturday, Sept. 18. Bring the kids, at 9 a.m. and learn about the mystique of butterflies from Arizona State University ecologists as you trek across Veterans Oasis Park on guided nature walks. The free festival gets you up close and personal with butterflies and dragonflies from all stages of life as you create crafts and play games. You'll even learn what types of flowers and plants attract our fluttering friends to create a butterfly oasis in your own backyard. The fun-filled morning continues until noon with special guest demonstrations and giveaways. "Dragonflies, damselflies, and butterflies flutter over the wetland habitats at Veterans Oasis Park during the late summer," explains Ariane Francis, Recreation Coordinator II at the Environmental Education Center. "Take the opportunity to learn about these magnificent insects and explore our picturesque Park, which is always gorgeous this time of year," says Francis. Be sure to bring your camera. Veteran's Oasis Park and EEC are located at 4050 E. Chandler Heights Road. The Environmental Education Center will remain open during normal business hours during the event so the community can experience the latest exhibits in the lobby. Guests also can enjoy shopping at the Owl's Nest Nature Store featuring eco-friendly products and nature-inspired books and toys.
