Is your yard an ugly caterpillar just waiting to blossom into a beautiful butterfly of landscaping grandeur? Well the Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land is here to help. Think of us as the fairy godmother to your languishing larva, and our butterfly gardening course as the magic wand that can turn that pitiful pupa of a yard into a glorious flying tapestry.
Think that was dramatic? Wait until you see your garden after an afternoon with HMNS Sugar Land’s Outdoor Learning Center Coordinator Aureline Roberts.
This Saturday, Aureline will teach 30 pupils all about gardening for butterflies: How to identify host and nectar plants and what sort of native butterfly species each attracts; how to preserve native insects; and how to incorporate all of this know-how into a new butterfly garden or into your existing landscape.
Each participant will take home a gift to get started. Book your spot today — space is limited to 30 participants and tickets must be purchased in advance. Spaces fill up quickly, so click here to get your garden going!
