Autrey Mill's Butterfly Garden Expanding

The Butterfly Garden was begun In the summer of 2014
Autrey Mill received a grant of $600 from a citizen who wanted to honor a family member who had passed away unexpectedly.  She loved butterflies and her family wanted to create a butterfly garden in her honor. We selected an area next to the small gazebo that overlooks the Fulton County Water Treatment reservoir and cleared vines and undergrowth from the area.  Nectar plants and host plants were planted and a stone path created.

The Butterfly Garden has been Expanded in 2016
We have been expanding the garden's area through the hard work of volunteers.  In addition, our neighbor Autrey Mill Middle School’s Eco-Tech Club and 7th grade science students would like to design and adopt a portion of the garden.  To facilitate the expanded garden, we sought funding from Monarchs Across Georgia to purchase mulch, additional host plants – specifically milk weed, additional nectar plants and hardscapes to improve the garden. The garden was fenced to keep plants safe from deer and rabbits.

The Butterfly Garden is Now Certified
The additional resources installed in 2016 qualified Autrey Mill as a Certified Pollinator Habitat with Monarchs Across Georgia. You can also find us now listed on the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail.

The garden is still being developed and the new plants need time to grow, but when at Autrey Mill, take time to walk the path across the road from the Visitor Center to see the garden.

Thanks to Our Heritage Docents

Our Heritage Docents, under the direction of our Collections and Exhibits Manager, have been busy sorting and recording the contents of boxes and bags of items from the Green Store collection. The photos below show just a small portion of the collection that includes items from the early to mid-1900s and capture life in the Johns Creek area when it was a rural farm community. This is just the start of a large project guided by museum protocols to preserve Johns Creek history.

We can’t thank our volunteer docents enough for all their help!
