The Butterfly Pavilion is going all out for Bloomapalooza, a celebration of Plant Conservation Day, with activities like seed-planting, rock wall-climbing, and live music, among other planned fun. The daylong event is free with general admission, which ranges from $5.50-$8.50. Want to get your hands dirty? They’ll be looking for visitors who want to plant native wildflowers in the nearby open space and to help plant a brand-new Bloomapalooza Butterfly Garden. They’re also looking for help restoring the Pavilion’s nature trail. If you’re in search of family activities, be sure to check out the craft stations, where you can paint a flower pot and plant a flower to take home, as well as make your own trail mix and learn about food sourcing. From 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. harpist Lynne Abbey-Lee and Broadway Music School founder Steve Shurack will entertain with live music. The event takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, May 29, and the website has a full list of activities.
