Butterflies, skippers, and other pollinators must come in contact with certain plants to be able to reproduce. Volunteers have created a pollinator habitat to support and encourage native butterfly reproduction by establishing larval host and nectar plants at the Briar Patch Trail Park. Their mission is to establish a Georgia pollinator habitat that sustains butterflies throughout their life stages, monitor migrating monarch butterflies & educate the public on how to incorporate larval host plants in their own gardens. The park offers a .25 mile walking trail, picnic tables, benches, and is pet friendly (must be on a leash). This is truly a one-of-a-kind park that demonstrates the beauty of nature.
