Butterfly House Art Project
February 1-March 20, 2024
The Big Haynes Creek Nature Center is hosting a Butterfly House Art Project
auxiliary event for the Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival. Arrack Construction INC.
generously donated twenty Victorian cottage-style butterfly houses, which will be painted with colorful designs by the young members of Troop #370 of the Navigator Scouts. This project will serve as an auxiliary art project of the Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival. The kids will earn badges for their participation. The new wildlife-friendly houses are slated for installation in March to enhance the beauty of the trail and its natural surroundings while providing shelter to all beneficial insects. The finished artwork and participants will be recognized during the March 23-24 weekend at the Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival.

Throughout the month of March, be on the lookout for paper "blossoms" along the trees, bushes, and other structures along the trails while hiking any areas of the Big Haynes Creek Nature Center, located at the Georgia International Horse Park. These "blossoms" will be hiding each week with the goal to have various visitors find them to trade them in for a timeless nature-inspired treasure commissioned by Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival artists.
Visitors who find a "blossom" should take a selfie with it and tag Big Haynes Creek Nature Center with #BHCNC, #Bloomingoodtime, and #TreastruesintheTrees. They are also welcome to stop into the Administration Office at the Georgia International Horse Park (located just across the road from Big Haynes Creek Nature Center) to get a free parking pass to the festival. Treasure finders can then bring the Blossom to the Information Booth at the Conyers Cherry Blossom Festival on March 23 or 24 to collect their beautiful festival keepsake. So, look up, look down, look all around...and find treasures that await!
