Along with the Pet part to the day, there is also the Butterfly part!  Experts will be present to show how to properly catch and release butterflies around the nature preserve.  Kids and adults enjoy learning interesting facts about the butterflies.  You can also learn more about butterflies inside the air-conditioned Nature Center.

There are several booths set up at the event, many geared toward our pet friends.  Idlewild Butterfly Farm will have a booth this year.  You can also meet adorable cats and dogs looking for homes.  Food, sweet treats, inflatables, crafts and face painting are also available.  Check their Facebook event for a schedule of contests.

The day is filled with cuteness and discovery. It's a great way to bring your entire family (furry members and all) outside to a great Oldham County gem. Check out "Woofstock" Pet Day & Butterfly Day at Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve!

Creasey Mahan Nature Preserve is located at 12501 Harmony Landing Road Goshen, Kentucky 40026
