Field Trip Friday: Powell Gardens

1609 N.W. U.S. Highway 50
Kingsville, MO 64061
(816) 697-2600

Last September we were able to get a membership to Powell Gardens for half price so we decided to try it.  We have really enjoyed visiting the garden during each season (even winter) to see how it changes.  Last weekend we went to the Festival of Butterflies and it was a fun learning experience (you know, one of those times when your kids are learning & they don't even know it!). 

There are lots of special events & classes at Powell Gardens so make sure and explore their website.  There is also information on becoming a Friends of Powell Gardens member.

 This weekend 8/12/11 - 8/14/11 is the last weekend for the Festival of Butterflies at Powell Gardens.

Those are the biggest catepillars I have ever seen!
