15th Annual Lawson Roberts Butterfly Festival, hosted by Kansas City, Kansas Public Library’s Mr. & Mrs. F. L. Schlagle Library, will be completely virtual this year.

These activities include craft and seed kits, Monarch tagging demonstrations, a scavenger hunt, and informational guides and videos on pollinators and native plants.
The 15th Annual Lawson Roberts Butterfly Festival will take place September 21-25. There is no charge to participate. For a complete list of activities, visit kckplprograms.org/2020-butterfly-festival
