Gray's Lake Park - 2101 Fleur Drive
On Saturday, May 27th from 10 am to Noon, Parks and Recreation will host a Plant.Grow.Fly event at the Gray’s Lake southeast parking lot. Sign up to be part of the program and not only will you help create the new Butterfly Garden at Gray’s Lake but you will make a butterfly friendly planter to take home with you on the same day. The first part of the program will involve learning about what pollinators need so they can survive and why they are so important to people. Second, participants will decorate and fill a flower pot they design to help support pollinators and they will take it home with them. The last part of the program will actually be planting native Iowa species of plants in a new butterfly garden. Be prepared to get your hands dirty and do a little work to help out Monarchs and pollinators.
Registration for this event is limited and the fee is $10 per take home planter created.
