How Your Donation Helps Us Fulfill Our Missions

Backyard Butterflies is a nonprofit and volunteer organization. We rely upon revenue generated from plant sales, and donations to fulfill our missions. All revenue and donations are used to support our missions of education, community outreach, and providing assistance in creating backyard habitats.

Caterpillar Support

In 2021 we provided host plant leaves and whole host plants to over 20 applicants that helped raise an estimated 300 caterpillars.

Habitat Maintenance

Our backyard habitat provides education and is where we grow host plants used for our Caterpillar Support Program and where we acquire caterpillars for our Raise A Caterpillar Workshops.

Education & Community Outreach

In 2021 we provided a free Caterpillar Raising Workshop to Girl Scout Troup #12555. We also held our Annual Open House & Plant Swap, Moth Night, and conducted two annual NABA butterfly counts.

Operating Expenses

Though we are a volunteer organization, we have annual operating expenses. We are conscientious about our operating costs and strive to keep them to a minimum.
