Cape May Butterfly Garden Tour September 9 and 10th

Posted 08/29/05
CAPE MAY, N.J. - More wildlife gardens are tucked
into Cape May County than practically anywhere else in the country..

And every September, Pat Sutton, coauthor (with her husband, Clay Sutton) of How to Spot Butterflies, takes a caravan tour of over a dozen butterfly havens in the county, from Cape May Point to Dennisville.

"It's been an incredible summer for Monarch butterflies and it just keeps getting better and better," Sutton says, "and I can't wait to
showcase the creative efforts of local gardeners."

Two Days of Tours

Friday's garden tour on September 9 will visit northern gardens between Dennisville and Rio Grande, including Sutton's own garden in Goshen.

Saturday's tour on September 10 will visit southern
gardens in and near Cape May Point, including the Cape May Times' garden.

Many of the private garden owners will be on hand to give personal advice and comments. This is the only opportunity for the public to see some of these gardens.

The tours take place at the peak butterfly time in Cape May - the first weekend after Labor Day.

Each tour begins at 10AM and runs until 3PM. Each is limited to 25 participants. The cost for each tour is $30 ($20 for members of Cape May Bird Observatory or New Jersey Audubon Society).

Registrations are being taken now for both tours.
Call (609) 861-0700 to reserve a spot.
