Butterfly Gardens of Saugeen Shores (BGOSS) embodies the true spirit of a community coming together to create garden habitats that are butterfly and pollinator friendly. Since its inception in 2014, BGOSS has created numerous habitats throughout Saugeen Shores by planting thousands of native plants. Many people have volunteered to plant and maintain these beautiful gardens.

Check out our BGOSS Nature Lending Library by the big flag in Southampton where you can get free Caterpillar Corner Activity Books and nature books. As well, our Southampton and Port Elgin libraries have butterfly gardening books and videos that were donated by BGOSS.

You too can help pollinators and nature by planting native plants in your yard. A handy list of plants is on our web site called, “Butterfly Gardening.”

Happy planting and enjoy the beauty of nature.
