The Garden is humming with life, “I am never disappointed by what I see at the Urquhart Butterfly Garden”, Matt said recently. If there are rare butterflies to be seen Matt will find them, as well as locating all the bird life hiding in the bushes or flitting among the trees.

The Guided Walk takes about an hour and begins at 11 am on Saturday, July 15. You are requested to wear a sun hat and bring a chair.
“I am never disappointed by what I see at the Urquhart Butterfly Garden” - Matt Mills
If it rains the walk will be cancelled.

The Summer Programme will be held every Saturday until September 2.

The Urquhart Butterfly Garden is located at the end of Centennial Park in Dundas. All ages are welcome. Lots of free parking available.

The Summer Series 2017 is funded by the Dougher Fund of the Hamilton Community Foundation.

A new virus infecting the local turtle population, road mortality as cars and trucks continue their shell-crushing trips down Cootes Drive.

Yes, it's WORLD TURTLE DAYand things are admittedly pretty bad for our slow-moving reptile friends.

That means it's time to make some changes!
Why not start with things we can easily control, like our own behaviour. Driving along Cootes?
