Sept. 30, 2023 – Jan. 7, 2024


Join us on a journey into the world of butterflies and plants, and see the complex relationship between monarchs and milkweed. “Monarchs and Milkweed” explores how very survival of these majestic creatures has been shaped over time by one another, traveling through the seasons of a calendar year and revealing how both insect and plant grow and interact, culminating in a massive migration that crosses a continent.

In the Baker Exhibit Center.

Exhibit support for Monarchs and Milkweed is provided in part by: The North Carolina Arboretum Society, B.B. Barns Garden Center and Landscape Company, Bartlett Tree Experts, The Laurel of Asheville, Travel Guide, and Smoky Mountain Living Magazine.
