Rosalynn Smith Carter 1927-2023

The Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail Board of Directors is saddened to share the news of the passing of Rosalynn Carter. She touched millions of people through her work with The Carter Center and the Rosalynn Carter Institute. Her love for nature was the inspiration behind the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail.

The Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail was created February 2013. It began as one garden at President and Mrs. Carter’s home in Plains, Georgia. She had read an article in a local magazine about the decline in Monarch butterflies. As a child she remembered playing outside with butterflies fluttering around her mother’s flowerbeds and native tuberosa milkweed growing behind their home. These fond memories led to a phone call to Annette Wise. After sharing the article and expressing her desire to have a pollinator garden, Annette was asked to help her. The location for the pollinator garden was selected and work began.
