Spring has brought many flowers into bloom at Auburn’s Kreher Preserve and Nature Center Butterfly Garden and the butterflies have noticed! Monarchs, tiger swallowtails, spicebush swallowtails, and many other butterflies are active right now. Come and sit among the flowers and watch – you are sure to see many species of butterflies fluttering all around you.
