What’s all the flutter? It could be the preparations underway for Dunwoody Nature Center’s biggest annual festival, or it could be the flapping wings of the hundreds of butterflies that will be front and center as guests of honor at the one-day event.

Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. marks the return of the festival that features a fabulous butterfly exhibit plus games, crafts, scavenger hunts and concessions.

This year you can enjoy the Birds of Prey show, live music, tours of the garden and classes taught by instructors from REI.

The cost of the event has been reduced this year to $8 for adults, $5 for children ages 4-12. The festival is free to children ages 3 and under.

Off-site shuttle service will be regularly available throughout the day and staggered, timed entry to the butterfly tent will keep lines moving.

DNC members will also enjoy early admission, beginning at 9 a.m.

Got some time and a compassion for giving?

The Community Action Center needs your help. The Sandy Springs’ nonprofit’s thrift boutique is seeking volunteers to staff the shop.

Ideal candidates would be able to work in the boutique once each week.

Open Monday through Friday between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. the boutique offers a wide selection of new, gently worn and designer-label clothing for the entire family.

Can you help? Please email Amy at volunteer@ourcac.org.

Veteran? Could you share your stories?

St. Martin’s Episcopal School is looking for military veterans who are willing to visit the school during school hours as a guest speaker in a classroom for 40-60 minutes between mid-September and the first week in October.

The Veteran’s Day “living history” project is an annual event at St. Martin’s in Brookhaven.

To volunteer, please contact Heidi McKerley at hmckerley@stmartinschool.org.
