The Lopez Island Library invites you to stop by the library and view a completely unique and lovely perspective on butterflies. Audrey Hancock, locally known as the Butterfly Lady because of her deep knowledge and appreciation of butterflies, is featured in the library’s glass exhibit case. Her shop in the village is not to be missed, the beauty and wonder of butterflies abounds. The library exhibit displays butterfly specific information on seed distribution including her 501c3 seed distribution program. The display also includes info on the farm raised immortalization & rescue program, as well as gardening tips for attracting butterflies and preserving their habitat. Her butterfly inspired jewelry is particularly well loved and will be featured in the exhibit too. Audrey shared the following with the library: “I’ve had a love affair with butterflies for as long as I can remember…the Monarch in particular. Over the years my adoring fascination has morphed into a not for profit business that combines creating the much needed habitat for our struggling local species, with support of butterfly farmers around the world preserving beautiful specimens for artistic and educational purposes.” Visit this exhibit and learn tips & tricks to grow the most tempting & delicious garden for our local tiger swallowtails!
