The Charlotte Rhoades Park and Butterfly Garden is located in Southwest Harbor, on Mount Desert Island. For visitors of all ages, it is exciting to experience a coastal butterfly habitat in Downeast Maine and see how careful organic gardening practices can sustain and protect butterflies. We hope you will be a frequent visitor to the park! Learn more about us on our video.
Grab your garden gloves, mark your calendar and join us for our Earth Day Cleanup on April 22 from 9-11:30. Coast Guard members will join us for this annual event as we clean out winter debris from the garden beds.
