Brandy for Butterflies
September 28 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
This summer, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (ICUN) announced the addition of the eastern migratory monarch butterfly to the endangered species list. The delicate and dedicated species is known for its remarkable annual 3,000-mile migration, and during the last 30 years, its population has decreased by more than 80 percent due to habitat loss, climate change and herbicide use.
Since its inception, Copper & Kings Distillery has provided sanctuary to the species with a dedicated 4,300 square foot Monarch butterfly way station lush with critical pollinators, including milkweed which is the only place the monarch lays its eggs.
Copper & Kings will host Brandy for Butterflies, coinciding with the fall migration, to celebrate and raise money for Re-Wilding Louisville, a collaborative organization that funds pollinator gardens at non-profit facilities in Louisville. Guests will enjoy food and beverage provided by the Copper & Kings Rooftop Bar & Restaurant, live music and local vendors market.
Brandy for Butterflies is free and open to the public. Donations are appreciated. Proceeds from the event will benefit Re-Wilding Louisville, a collaborative organization that plants Native Pollinator Gardens for Louisville area non-profit organizations.
