    (I guess I mean caterpillars. :) )

    I want to put together a little project involving butterfly houses, cocoons, and eventually, a butterfly to release.

    Hmmm... For best results, plant lots of butterfly favorites, such as Sturtevant's Milkweed (it doesn't spread like wildfire), butterfly weed (duh, but it's a tough one to grow), Queen of the Prairie, and/or Joe Pye Weed.

    Geneva Park District has a butterfly house at Peck Farm, you might call them and ask their sourse. Perhaps Garfield Park or Lincoln Park has something similiar and will help you.

    Saint Pizza, you did go off-topic, but you can easily remedy that problem by eating one of the butterflies. :lol:
