Gardening For Butterflies, Caterpillars and Their Host Plants

Diane Lucas, Botanical Artist and Illustrator

This presentation discusses 18 butterflies common to Nova Scotia, their larval host plants, their adult diet, and how we can create their needed habitat in our gardens and parks. Each species of butterfly is illustrated with its caterpillars and their host plants.

Diane is a retired children’s book illustrator, a  botanical/nature artist, and a lifelong gardener. She is a local leader in David Suzuki’s Butterflyway project and has created an illustration series entitled ‘Butterflies and Their Host Plants’, as an educational part of the project.
