Butterflies Go Native - Lenora Larson • Harvey County

Tuesday, Mar 28th, 2017 @ 6:30pm
Dyck Arboretum of the Plains • 177 W. Hickory • Hesston, KS • Map

Kansas native plants and native butterflies have evolved together in symbiosis. Likewise, native plant gardeners and butterfly enthusiasts are natural soul mates. Indeed, only native plants are allowed for garden certification by NABA (North American Butterfly Association). Scientist and Kansas State University master gardener, Lenora Larson, will share her insights on butterfly lifestyles and showcase stunning photographs of our native butterflies and their native plants hosts. Participants will learn how to expand their native plant focus to attract “flying flowers”.

Come for supper at 6:00 p.m. or just the lecture at 6:30 p.m. ($2 for lecture, $7 for supper and lecture). Call 620-327-8127 by 4 p.m. on Friday before the Tuesday lecture for supper reservations.
