Become a Patron of the Charlotte Rhoades Park

Patrons of the park have generously provided funds to benefit the ongoing maintenance of the garden and educational outreach performed by dozens of volunteers annually. There is no better way to insure the continued perpetuation of the garden, than by supporting the annual Butterfly Release. For $150, a Patron will receive up to six butterflies the day of the butterfly release while supporting the ongoing work at the park. For more information please contact Ann Judd at 266-6047.
