The Butterfly Challenge

Date(s) – Jun 01 2017 until Jul 31 2017
All Day

Come one, come all! Chieftains Museum is issuing a Butterfly Challenge to our community starting June 1st.  As part of our role as a certified UGA Pollinator Garden and stop on the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail, the museum is seeking help from “detectives” of all ages to identify the butterflies that inhabit our gardens and grounds this summer.

The Butterfly Challenge requires that you visit the campus and snap a photo of yourself with a butterfly in one of our gardens as well as a detailed photo of the butterfly you found. Then, post both photos to the Chieftains Museum Facebook page. With each new butterfly you identify and post, your name will be entered into a drawing for one of three prizes! Don’t forget that we have butterfly identification guides for sale in our gift shop to help you identify your find.

The Butterfly Challenge runs from June 1st – July 31st with all photos posted by midnight on July 31st eligible for our drawing. Our three prizes include a $10 gift card to Sweet Frog, a $15 gift card to Chick-fil-A, and a $25 gift card to Outback Steakhouse.

All butterfly data collected from the Butterfly Challenge will be recorded by the museum and shared with UGA and the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail.
