Master Gardener Lecture at Crossroads

Any day now, butterflies will be flitting around Crossroads at Big Creek. Crossroads and a growing number of people are landscaping specifically to improve butterfly habitat. To learn more about landscaping and planning a project, attend the Master Gardeners lecture, “Prairie Plants for the Home Garden” on April 21 at 7 pm. Master Gardener Chriss Daubner will discuss the reasons prairie plants are a great choice for home gardeners, particularly those concerned about sustainability and environmental responsibility. She will illustrate her talk with images of her own prairie plantings.
