The Butterflies are Coming....

Summer is coming, and so are the butterflies!

Monday, June 12 at 7 p.m., learn what to plant and how to care for a yard or garden that attracts butterflies, bees and other pollinators: with Nina Koziol, a down-to-earth gardening instructor who regularly provides classes at the Chicago Botanic Gardens.

Saturday, June 29, 10 a.m. - 3 p.m., drop in to observe a variety of butterflies - monarchs, painted ladies, black swallowtails and possibly gulf fritillaries - in an "encounter tent." Learn how you can help care for these fragile neighbors from the information displayed and discussed by an expert from Salt Creek Butterfly Farm.

Start planning today to make your yard a haven for butterflies, stop by the library and get a book off the gardening book display!
