Due to construction my home 'nursery' is closed for the season. I will be doing a few holiday events in November and December, stay tuned. And I am still making seed balls to order.
FREE PROGRAMS AT THE PARKER RIVER NATIONAL WILDLIFE REFUGE!
SATURDAY SEPT. 22nd:
Come to the Refuge Visitor Center for two FREE programs!
10:30-11:30 AM: Family monarch program with tagging. Learn about the monarch butterfly's metamorphosis and migration and make milkweed seed balls to take home. Program will conclude with tagging monarch butterflies and releasing them (if weather is good) in the Refuge garden. Appropriate for ages 2-8.
12:30-2:00 PM: Tagging for older children and adults. Learn about the monarch butterfly's biology, migration and the history of monarch tagging. We will conclude with tagging and releasing (if weather is good) in the Refuge garden. Seed balls will also be available to make after the release. Appropriate for ages 8 to adult.
I regret that I will most likely not make another market. I'll be back for indoor markets this Holiday season!
