Have family in town over Labor Day weekend and not sure what to do? Here are some great ideas!
Coastal Discovery Museum @ Honey Horn
A visit to the Karen Wertheimer Butterfly Habitat is a favorite local Hilton Head Island activity. This greenhouse garden is populated with native butterflies from May through October. The butterfly exhibit is filled with nectar plants to feed the butterflies, and host plants where butterflies lay their eggs and caterpillars feed. Informational panels throughout the butterfly enclosure enhance the visitor experience, detail the natural history of these insects and, explain how to attract them to your yard. Visitors learn about the four stages of the butterfly’s life cycle from butterfly eggs, caterpillars and chrysalises, to adult butterflies. Guided tours of the butterfly enclosure are offered during the butterfly season (May through October).
The Coastal Discovery Museum offers a fantastic selection of both land and water tours.
