The Butterfly Garden

The Butterfly Garden is located adjacent to the Arts Building and covers approximately 4800 square feet.  Begun in 2009, the garden includes more than 35 species of pollinator plants.  Working with Annmarie staff, volunteers Mary Oritt, Linda Crandall, and Liz Stoffel, helped transform this weedy patch into a glorious refuge for native plants, insects, and other critters.  Not only is the Butterfly Garden enjoyed by guests, it is also used as as teaching garden by the Annmarie faculty and the Calvert County Master Gardeners.
