Somervell County Master Gardeners
Community Horticulture Education Series (CHES)
Monday, April 14th at 6:30 pm
209 SW Barnard Street, Glen Rose
Free and Open to the Public
This month’s education program is entitled “RETURN OF THE KING” and will be presented by Fossil Rim’s Natural Resources Specialist, Curt Decker. Decker will be talking about none other than the Monarch Butterfly. He is concerned about the cross-border migration of the Monarch as well as establishing healthy breeding grounds for them as they visit our area.
Decker will also be discussing other issues relating to the Monarch such as raising feeder plants and international current events that affect the butterflies.
Our own Master Gardener, Bonnah Boyd, will also speak Monday night. She will teach us how to germinate and plant milkweed, which is a host plant for Monarch larvae.
We invite the community to join us at 6:30 p.m. at the Citizens’ Center at 209 SW Barnard Street here in Glen Rose. As always, this program is a free public service given by Somervell County Master Gardeners.
