Planting for Butterflies

Ohio

Join Ben Lutz, one of our native plant garden volunteers at the Dr. James K. Bissell Nature Center.  Ben will lead a discussion on which plants can attract butterflies.  Take home some seeds to plant in your own garden.

The group will meet at the Dr. James K. Bissell Nature Center which is located  within the Grand River Conservation Campus on the Morgan Swamp Preserve .

At nearly 2,000 acres, The Nature Conservancy’s Morgan Swamp Preserve is one of the largest privately protected forested wetlands in Ohio. The swamp is home to an abundance of wetlands including swamps, bogs, beaver ponds and vernal pools. A rich diversity of plants and animals call it home, from the beautiful white calla lily to the tiny four-toed salamander hidden among the vernal pools. 

Come early and join us for a wildflower hike at noon.  Event details here.

Open to the public; all ages welcome!
