July 11, 2019 – “Landscaping for Butterflies” –  If you plant it… they will come! All it takes to have a yard that is filled with butterfly activity is planting the species specific host and nectar plants that will attract and sustain a butterfly population. The added bonus is that a butterfly friendly yard is also an environmentally sustainable yard! Come join us to learn all you need to know, as well as some fascinating facts you never knew about butterflies. (Please note the date for this program has been changed from the FIRST THURSDAY of the month to the SECOND THURSDAY, due to the 4th of July holiday)
