Did you know that there are over 750 species of butterflies in the United States? These beautiful insects are often portrayed as the essence of nature, often representing freedom, beauty or peace. There are many references to butterflies and moths in literature, from the Bible through Shakespeare to modern day literature, and from poetry to musical lyrics. Unfortunately, butteries are on the decline, but you can help create a sanctuary in your own garden.
Butterflies will visit any garden, however small if they can feed on suitable nectar plants and a well thought out garden can attract many species of butterfly. Come join us on Wednesday, March 25th from 6:30 to 8:00 PM at the Fellowship United Methodist of Haddon Heights (704 Garden Street) for a free program about how you can help save the butterfly by providing suitable nectar plants even in a small garden.
Local Master Gardener, Linda Hurd will be presenting “Grow Butterflies it’s an Emergency. Children are welcome and don’t forget you will be receiving free Common Milk Weed Seeds to begin improving our whole environment for wildlife and enrich the lives of people now and in the future.
Call the church office at 856-547-3300 for any questions regarding the program.
