Lake Granbury Master Gardeners aim sky high. They envision Hood County as the monarch butterfly capital of North Texas! And they encourage community support to help make this happen.

The festival will feature educational programs as well as fun hands-on activities for children, such as face painting and crafts. The goal is to provide all ages with an enjoyable learning experience. Attendees will learn to attract, provide for and protect Monarchs and other pollinators.

The festival will include educational displays, hosted tours of the demonstration gardens, a monarch butterfly release, opportunities to capture and tag butterflies as well as a plant sale featuring butterfly host and nectar plants. Visitors will learn about the monarch’s migration through Texas and hear about how to create a butterfly-friendly garden. Attendees are encouraged to dress as butterflies.
