MOTHER’S DAY at Fenner Nature Center

LIVE AT FENNER: Prickly Plants for Butterflies (& Moms!)
Sunday, May 10, 1:00-2:00pm.
$4/person. $2 for members, at the door.

Some wild-growing plants that are thorny are often pulled from your backyard garden but can be valuable plants to a host of beautiful butterflies.

Mother’s Day participants are encouraged to look beyond the prickles and gain an understanding of each plant’s ecological benefits, especially to butterflies. At the presentation’s conclusion, participants can choose a potted prickly plant to take home and nurture in the yard. Jim guarantees that "if you plant it, they will come."

After the presentation Jim will lead an interpretive walk on the trails, open to any nature center visitors.
