Celebrate Spring with Butterflies!

This Saturday the Water Conservation Garden will kick off its butterfly season with a free Spring Garden & Butterfly Festival. The fun starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 3. In between you’ll enjoy the gorgeous gardens, interact with butterflies, participate in butterfly crafts and story times and watch a butterfly release.


Ms. Smarty Plants story time will be part of this weekend’s festival.

Your kids will get a kick out of the sculptured shrubs!


Enjoy the wonderful Water Conservation Garden trails for free!

The festival is just the start of the butterfly fun at the Water Conservation Garden. This little Rancho San Diego gem is open daily from 9 am to 4 pm (except certain holidays) and is always free. It’s the perfect way to spend a few hours with your littles, searching for dinosaur footprints, gnomes, stepping stones, garden jewels, fairy gardens, koi fish, and more! The trails are flat (even stroller friendly and…dog friendly!)

The whole family can learn about water conservation while taking in the natural beauty of San Diego’s East County.

The butterfly exhibit will continue through May, so even if you can’t make it to this weekend’s festival, you’ll be able to see the butterflies for the next several weeks.
