Blendon Woods Metro Park, is located east of Columbus. This park consists of 653 acres of woods, fields, trails, a nature center, the 118 acre Walden Waterfowl Refuge and Thoreau Lake.

Visit the nature center to discover the various bird, animal, and insect species that frequent the park.

Don’t be surprised to see wild turkeys (along with groundhogs, wooly worms, and other wildlife) cross your path!

This screened-in tent, allows park visitors to spend time with these beautiful butterflies. Lured by several flower species and nectar feeders the butterflies are attracted to this tent habitat.

Spend some time in the tent with the butterflies, admiring their beauty. Watch them flutter and dip throughout the tent and wonder how these tiny creatures make such an amazing migration.

These little beauties will grow and fly in the screened-in tent until the Blendon Woods annual Monarch Day.

The butterflies will be released into the wild to begin their 2,000-mile journey to Mexico's oyamel fir forests. It's amazing that these delicate-looking creatures can survive such a long journey!

Visit the monarch butterflies at Blendon Woods Metro Park before they fly away!
