  • New at the Crane Estate: BUTTERFLY ENCOUNTER!
    Imagine talking to a butterfly….What would you ask?What stories could they tell?
    Just in time for National Pollinator week, here comes a wonderful new outdoor program for children and adults in the gardens of the Crane Estate on Castle Hill.  It’s the totally interactive Butterfly Encounter!
    A friendly giant monarch butterfly puppet will welcome you into all the adventures of butterfly-life:Growing up in the milkweed patch…Morphing from a caterpillar…And making an incredible journey across continents!
    Young children will delight in the wonder of garden animals…Older children and adults will discover how pollinators shape the whole eco-system…And the hearts of everyone, young and old, will open to this amazing migrating garden helper!
    Your 45-minute Butterfly Encounter will happen in the beautiful Rose (or Italian) Garden adjacent to the Great House.Get ready to meet the 4-foot-long caterpillar munching its way across the gardens … before transforming into a grand and glorious monarch butterfly — with a 5-foot wingspan!
    These fascinating butterfly and caterpillar puppets were created for the Trustees by master puppeteer and actor Lucas Milliken of Jamaica Plain.See you at the Butterfly Encounter!
