Become a Butterfly Benefactor!
What will you do for fun this summer?
You could stress over planning structured activities.
Or . . . you could wing it.
The Butterfly Habitat at Lost River Cave provides a unique, unstructured outdoor experience. It is a place where you can relax, let your imagination soar and find yourself in nature.
By taking action with a donation to the 2017 Butterfly Habitat, you join a group of dedicated, imaginative people and create an environment where discovery takes flight. With your donation, you become a Butterfly Benefactor!
A small $5 donation pays for one butterfly to be added to the Butterfly Habitat at Lost River Cave. When you increase your donation, you help provide host and feeder plants for the butterflies to thrive.
How does your donation have an impact when it takes $15,000 to fund the Butterfly Habitat each season? Think of it this way: if each of our Facebook fans gave just $5, the Butterfly Habitat would be funded through 2019!
So wing it, BG, and watch your donation take flight!
