Remake Learning Days - Nature in the Neighborhood
10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Nature in the Neighborhood is a two-hour program centered around transforming an empty space on our new library grounds into a butterfly garden to attract local species of butterflies and pollinators.  The program, for students in grades 3 and up, will begin with an interactive session, where participants will learn about a few of the interesting butterflies that can be found in our community and the species of plants they depend on to survive.  We will work with a naturalist and a master gardener to learn the importance of planting native plants and providing all the habitat components to support butterflies throughout their life cycle.  Participants will learn how to select plants that will support eggs, caterpillars, and butterflies, as well as how to provide safe shelter for butterflies in the garden. Participants will then get their hands dirty and learn how to properly plant the selected plants for the garden.  After learning proper planting techniques, we will work together on our garden metamorphosis!  Participants will help in planting and mulching.  We will also have a station for participants to paint rocks to add to our garden, creating a lasting, colorful, community artwork for our new library space.  
Participants will also be able to make a plan for their own garden to implement at home after learning about different species of essential plants for butterflies. Registration required and begins March 18, 2019.
