Butterfly Gardening



Time: 6:15-7:00P

Dolly Foster is a landscape horticulturist, master gardener, certified arborist, and avid butterfly gardener. Her garden at home is a Monarch Way Station where she raises Monarch and Swallowtail butterflies.

At our meeting, Dolly will talk about host plants that will attract butterflies, and show us how to plan a garden that will provide food and cover for caterpillars. She will also talk about the caterpillar/butterfly life cycle. This is an integral part of planning a butterfly garden. Residential butterfly gardens connect one natural habitat to the next.

Join a new conservation movement and learn how to start a butterfly habitat in your garden.
