Our egg-laying bench features host plants that attract female butterflies to lay their eggs, which we then collect and provide TLC for the baby caterpillars in our breeding lab. Our volunteer Natalie continues our video series which explains what host plants and butterflies we have in our beautiful butterfly sanctuary.
