Leonardtown Butterfly Trail (opening in July of 2021). This brand new
trail (as well as the kid's Caterpillar Corner) will mark exciting historic landmarks,
beautiful outdoor spaces, hidden works of art and fun activities throughout this
vibrant Southern Maryland Town. All this and more is waiting for you to rediscover
As an Arts & Entertainment District (the only one in Southern Maryland), it’s
fitting that the trail will be marked by beautiful butterfly banners and flags
created by one of Leonardtown’s talented local artists, Eric Clark Jackson of Bay Fibers Studio. Eric created the unique works of art through a process called batik. Batik is an Indonesian technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to cloth. Eric views his work as a contemporary take on traditional wildlife illustration, with much of his subject matter pulled from the land and water of the Chesapeake region.
The Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Official Opening of the Leonardtown Butterfly Trail is scheduled for Sunday, July 11, 2021 at 1 PM. Bring the entire family and enjoy a day of fun and exploration in Leonardtown!
