Chandler's Dragonfly & Butterfly Bash returns Sept. 18. The event begins at 9 a.m. and allows kids to learn about butterflies from Arizona State University ecologists while they trek across Veterans Oasis Park on guided nature walks, according to a news release from the city.
The free festival gets visitors up close and personal with butterflies and dragonflies from all stages of life as they create crafts and play games. The event goes until noon.
“Dragonflies, damselflies and butterflies flutter over the wetland habitats at Veterans Oasis Park during the late summer,” said Ariane Francis, recreation coordinator II at the Environmental Education Center, in a news release. “Take the opportunity to learn about these magnificent insects and explore our picturesque park, which is always gorgeous this time of year."
Veterans Oasis Park and the Environmental Education Center are located at 4050 E. Chandler Heights Road.
