Planting and Maintenance of the Butterfly Garden

About this committee:

The Butterfly Garden is an on-going project that provides visual enjoyment for numerous visitors to a large park and recreation area at Covered Bridge Park and Wehr's Dam. The Club donates the plants and the township provides mulch for the garden. Planting, trimming and general maintenance are done monthly by the team throughout the growing season.

First Spring Tending 2024

The Butterfly Garden looked fabulous for the first clean up of Spring on April 10th. Committee members came with rakes, brooms and trowels to pull out weeds and clean leaves from the garden bed. Park users passing by commented on the garden and thanked members for keeping it beautiful for all to enjoy. Thank you Donna, Tom, Marie, Patti, Ardith, Claire, Judy, Bonnie, Helen and Maria!


Unfortunately the parking lot next to our garden will be under construction until September and work on the garden this summer will not be possible. Our club plans to resume beautification of this area when South Whitehall Township completes the improvements.

Clean Up 2023 with some Halloween Fun!

On October 25, 2023 Committee Chair Donna along with members Patti, Bonnie, Marlene, Candy (our newest member), President Claire, Helen, Tom, Marie and Evelyn all got into the spirit by wearing costumes for the final clean up of the season. The garden is now ready for its long winter rest. Happy Halloween to all from the Butterfly Garden Committee!
