April 6, 2019, 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Valley Ranch Association
While we were super excited to bring this garden talk to you at Canyon Crest Park, it seems that the weather is no longer in our favor. Don’t fret, the event will continue at the Valley Ranch Association office (8830 N. MacArthur Blvd, Suite 101, Irving 75063).
Nancy Payne will speak on a diversity of plants and flowers that attract pollinators such as hummingbirds, bees, and of course, butterflies. A light breakfast of mini muffins and fruit will be served and crafts will be available for the kids while supplies last.
All ages are welcome to learn about butterflies in this Gardening for Wildlife workshop, presented by the Valley Ranch Association. Bubbles will be sprayed throughout the park during the event, and light refreshments will be served.
