Cape Fear Botanical Garden Holds Butterfly Workshop
On Saturday, Aug. 12, from 10 a.m. to noon, the garden is holding an adult workshop titled "Attracting Butterflies."
Billie Harrell, Greenhouse Propagator at the Botanical Garden, will show participants how to make their gardens a haven for these colorful "flying flowers."
Harrell, who creates garden designs with butterflies in mind, will provide plant lists, growing instructions and even some appropriate plants to get you started.
The fee for this workshop is $18 for Botanical Garden members or $20 for non-members.
Contact the Garden office at 910-486-0221 to register. Space is limited.
"Attracting Butterflies" is part of a series of adult workshops held by Cape Fear Botanical Garden on the second Saturday of each month.
Other adult programs include guided tours, teacher training and providing speakers for community groups.
Children's programs sponsored by the Botanical Garden range from school field trips, Scout badge programs, "Nature in the Classroom," visits by Garden mascot "Limmie the Talking Tree" and more, to Cape Fear Kids Summer Day Camp, a special opportunity for children who might not otherwise be able to attend camp.
Located on 536 N. Eastern Boulevard, Fayetteville's Cape Fear Botanical Garden encompasses 85 acres of lush pine and hardwood forest.
Visitors can enjoy the Garden's unique combination of natural and cultivated areas, with a wide variety of indigenous plants, trees and wildlife, nature trails and a natural amphitheater, along with specialty gardens, seasonal displays, exhibits and amenities.
