Wednesday, volunteers helped build a butterfly garden at the Wildlands Trust Headquarters off Long Pond Road.
Two squares were cleared out for plants and seeds.
Plants for the garden include milkweed and Indian blanket.
The garden will be a way station for Monarch Butterflies migrating between the eastern United States and Mexico.
One of the garden plots was seeded, while another had already grown plants added.
Monarch butterflies travel a long way, migrating back and forth between the Eastern United States and the Sierra Madre Mountains in Mexico, according to United States Department of Agriculture website.
Andrew Bagnara, an AmericCorps volunteer with the Wildlands Trust, set out to build a place for the insects to rest. Along with a crew of volunteers, he built a butterfly garden at the Davis-Douglas Farm that will act as a rest stop for the tired travelers.
