On Saturday, April 16 at 1 p.m., Central Texas Gardener producer Linda Lehmusvirta will speak at the EmilyAnn Theatre & Gardens Butterfly Festival. Her talk will be followed by a question and answer period.
The Butterfly Festival takes place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the EmilyAnn Theatre & Gardens at 1101 FM 2325 Wimberley, Texas 78676. Admission is free but donations are accepted.
Every 30 minutes, butterflies will be released. The first release will honor the victims of the May 2015 floods in Wimberley. A butterfly tent from Houston will be set up for humans and butterflies to interact. Additionally, you can check out the work of this year’s Butterfly Art Contest winner, Hannah Kuriakose of Stafford Middle School in Frisco, as well as many others! And if all of this wasn’t enticing enough, the San Antonio Zoo will also be there.
The EmilyAnn Theatre & Gardens was founded in 1988 and named in honor of EmilyAnn, who was an actress and costume designer. It is a permanent home for Shakespeare Under the Stars.
