Welcome to Beautiful Butterflies, a virtual 4-H School Enrichment program.

Join us as we embark on a metamorphosis adventure! Together, we will learn about the life cycle of a butterfly and watch as they change from tiny caterpillars to beautiful butterflies before our eyes. At the end of our journey, you’ll have the opportunity to demonstrate your knowledge and receive a personalized Friend of Butterflies certificate!

Thank you to the Michigan 4-H Children’s Gardens for many of the awesome educational resources we have included in this virtual program.
