Sharing the wonder of a butterfly emerging from its chrysalis. Educating visitors on our native butterfly species and how they contribute to our local agriculture, gardens and beauty. Tending to caterpillars. Sound like fun?
You can do all that and more when you join our volunteer docent team at the Panhandle Butterfly House.
The first training class is Tuesday, April 15 from 1:30-4:30 p.m. and will be held at the Navarre Visitor Center located at 8543 Navarre Parkway in Navarre Park.

Mark your calendar for Monarch Madness!! Friday and Saturday, October 3rd and 4th, 2014!!
The Panhandle Butterfly House is ALWAYS in need of volunteers!
BESIDES DOCENTS WE HAVE OTHER IMMEDIATE VOLUNTEER NEEDS:
Facilities Chairperson - help maintain and coordinate others to maintain the PBH buildings and grounds systems - we have a budget that supports hiring significant things to be done but need someone to coordinate with outside contractors and to do small fixes around the house: replace a blind or door lock, sprinkler system repairs, etc. We have some other folks who can and will help you but we need a focal point. This is a significant need!
Gardens Chairperson - work in, plan plantings, and coordinate other volunteers to keep our beautiful gardens ready for our visitors, human and butterfly alike!
• Experienced Gardeners
• "Roaming" Market Manager - handle special events selling and delivery of goods to satellite sales location
• Volunteers coordinator - help us get volunteers
• Fund raising Chair person - help us with financial support
• Monarch Madness Coordinator - chair, coordinate and report on our annual event
