Welcome to the Brower Park Monarch Butterfly Garden


"You've Got a Friend in Me," Video by Vincent Doogan


Over 50 Crown Heights community volunteers came together to build the Monarch Butterfly Garden from May 31 - June 1, 2014. We need your help to continue developing our Monarch Butterfly Garden throughout the summer and fall. In return you will have the pleasure of working shoulder to shoulder with your neighbors, making new friends and become an active participant in nature's ecological rhythms.


Volunteer to help Friends of Brower Park prepare our precious green space for the winter ahead. We will continue to work in the park on weekends as long as weather permits. 

We thank all the volunteers and our Compost Project partners for a successful leaf collection event. Over 50 volunteers from all over the city came together to continue Friends of Brower Park's Leaf Composting Project. We will be meeting in Brower Park Sunday, November 23rd at 10:30 AM. See you there.
