A number of job slots need filling at the 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. event. These include children’s crafts, admissions, butterfly room and caterpillar monitors, distributing insect nets, and kitchen staff.

Help is needed on Friday (August 26) as well to cut and arrange flowers for the indoor butterfly garden and to set up the children’s crafts room.
