I am a local and decided to go with some friends to brookgreen gardens because they were having a butterfly release where they were supposed to release hundreds of monarch butterflys into their garden after some book signing from some author. We waited and waited in the hot sun with almost no shade at the appropriate time while they were setting up for the release. Heres the comical part. they bring out this tiny little see-through box that looked like it had MAYBE 30-40 butterflys in it. The lasy opened it up and about 12 butterflys came out. Half of them were still in the box, the lady had to shew them out. That was it. Maybe 30, 40 butterflys TOPS came out. It was quite sad and dissapointing waiting all that time for that. I was not the only one dissapointed. I overheard lots of other people who were not happy either.
Other than that, I walked around the gardens and had a wonderful time looking at the various flowers, and sculptures. There is a lot to see. Also, the welcome staf was very very friendly and informative.
I enjoyed my time at the gardens, but the butterfly release was really a let-down.
