Guided Tours of Butterfly House & Creekhouse Gardens

The Farmscape Ecology “Field Station” at the Creekhouse is continuing to develop. In addition to our small Butterfly House, where visitors can closely observe local butterflies, the ever-expanding Native Plant Garden, we are working on creating a small loop trail and boardwalk making the stream more accessible and also serving as a “phenology trail” for monitoring the life cycle stages of a selection of plants. New signage and displays featuring our phenology research and information about the native plants in the garden will enrich the visitors’ experience.

Tours are by appointment only and limited to five participants per tour. Participants have to be willing to wear masks whenever we are not able to maintain 6 feet distance from each other. The  tours will be offered on most Fridays and Saturdays, through the summer. Please contact Nellie to sign up for this, or one of the other upcoming tours:

Friday, June 25, 1-2pm

I’ve been here many times, usually on a day trip to get lunch, and to take in the vibe of the community. The food is always outrageously good and the atmosphere tranquil. There are few places like this, where such cooperative values and commitment to high-quality organic food production are so intrinsically linked. This sort of symbiotic relationship between humanism and the environment is the antidote for corporate America. We need more places like Hawthorne Valley.
