Little Wings on the Prairie

  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • Butterfly Garden at Oahe Downstream

Come for a day of butterflies, pollinators, and other creatures that inhabit our Prairie Butterfly Garden at Oahe Downstream Recreation Area. Participants can tour the garden, learn about the importance of all pollinators and local experts can assist those with insect, catepillar, and butterfly identification.

Educational stations are set-up with creative activities so guests can learn more about the importance of our pollinator species. Opportunity to photograph the butterflies is always possible.

The South Dakota Discovery Center will hold its monthly maker activity there. Learn how to make observations of plants and insects using the iNaturalist app. iNaturalist is a tool to record species occurrence and distribution. The garden is located at the entrance to the park, just south of the Welcome Center. Park entrance fee required.
