Butterfly Sanctuary


A butterfly sanctuary is under construction at Huntington’s Kinetic Park.
Executive Director, Tom Bell of the Huntington Municipal Development Authority tells the Herald-Dispatch that 400 milkweeds and three varieties of perennials have been planted in the lower part of the park along Fourpole Creek.

The planting is on one of the twenty-five acres in the sanctuary and additional plantings are set for the spring. An outdoor classroom is also planned to be included.
