Follow the Butterfly Trail!

It all started with a


to paint a huge butterfly,

and that's what Bess Taylor did.

Working with the NC Museum of Natural Sciences in Whiteville,

with funding from the Friends of NCMNC,

Bess made her dream

a reality. 

And then,


it grew.

Thanks to the Whiteville Rotary Club and other civic groups

sponsorship for the 2nd - 4th butterflies

the dream expanded to a 

butterfly trail.

Currently there are 7 butterflies on the trail.

Each butterfly has specific meaning for the location

and the group that sponsored the art.

Bess is passionate about education, conservation,

and helping people experience learning through art. 

Spreading the love opens up possibilities and 

you too

can be involved in the art along the trail. 

As you journey along the trail,

take a photo with the butterfly

and tag it with #whitevillebutterflies
