Breeze by the butterfly garden

If you haven’t seen the butterfly garden between buildings 1 and 2, you have missed a dazzling array of nature at its finest. Baby hummingbirds, moth hummingbirds, and a variety of butterflies are posing for photographs every day.

The garden is the creation of Director of Evening Programs Kathy McGurgan. College president William Findt embraced the idea and has encouraged McGurgan in her efforts.

“I want the butterfly garden to be uplifting, comforting, enjoyable, and educational,” stated McGurgan. To add to the theme, McGurgan commissioned a welding sculpture by BCC former welding student, Savannah Schmidt. The piece is attached to a pole over the garden.

McGurgan leads the Green Technology Committee, whose goal it is to bring awareness of the environment to campus. To get involved, contact McGurgan at
