Friday June 21st

All Ages - FREE

Liberty Hall Historic Site
218 Wilkinson St.
Frankfort KY

Join us in the garden to observe fireflies (or lightning bugs!) as they light up the evening sky with their luminescent displays. Learn about how and why they use their unique adaptation to communicate. 

As partners with Dark Sky Frankfort, our nighttime critters like fireflies, owls, and bats mean a lot to us! We are excited to invite everyone to experience the garden at night.

Meet us in the back of Liberty Hall and bring your own jar! We encourage you to safely catch and release the fireflies found in our garden. Feel free to also bring a blanket to sit and connect with the natural environment.

Planting Native Shrubs for Pollinators
with Speaker Beate Popkin
Saturday June 29th
10:00am
FREE

Orlando Brown House
202 Wilkinson St.
Frankfort KY  

Learn how you can support pollinators and other wildlife by incorporating native plants into your landscape. Join us for a short presentation by Beate Popkin in the Orlando Brown House, followed by a tour of the gardens with our Garden Curator, Isabel Cochran.

Beate Popkin is a native plant expert, longtime garden designer, and member of the Lexington Wild Ones Chapter. Last year, we received a grant from the Kentucky Native Plant Society to add more plants for pollinators to Euphemia’s butterfly garden. We used the funds to purchase several native shrubs that were planted throughout the property. We will be checking in on these shrubs and the many other native plants on site!
