Butterfly Trail Overview

Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail


Rosalynn Carter wanted to establish a butterfly garden at her home in Plains, Georgia to encourage the conservation of butterflies and their habitats. In April 2013, The Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail was established by Annette Wise with the Georgia Department of Education. The trail resulted from Mrs. Carter’s desire to bring public awareness to the declining monarch butterfly population. The state’s science and social studies curricula were reviewed and links identified for various grade levels. A plan was established to promote public, private, and school gardens.

You are invited to join the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail. We have special listings for public and private gardens as well as school gardens.
