The butterfly aviary was created by the Holliston Agricultural Commission in 2015. Member PJ Kilkelly brought this project to the commission and saw that the project came together. With a lot of hard work and incredible donations from the Holliston Newcomers Club and Scott's MiracleGrow500, and our fundraiser "Kiss the Pig" we raised almost $10,000.
This project is in its third season in 2017 and donations towards operating expenses are graciously accepted. If you are interested in helping, volunteering, or raising butterflies, please contact the Holliston Agricultural Commission.
There is no entrance fee for the butterfly aviary but we are accepting donations! This project was made possible by generous donations. You may send your donation to:
