AT: Butterfly Gardening with Elizabeth White Olsen

June 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


Hybrid. In Person (Houston Arboretum) or Virtual (Zoom Link)

Along with many species of wildlife in our country, populations of Texas Gulf Coast butterflies are increasingly threatened by habitat loss and other factors. In this presentation, we will learn what butterflies need to survive and complete their life cycle, as well as ways we can help them in our own yards. Join us for an inspiring and illuminating journey into the magical lives of one of nature’s most wondrous creatures, the butterfly.

Elizabeth White Olsen is the co-founder of GO Native Landscaping, LLC, along with her husband, Glenn Olsen. Through GO Native’s on-site consultations, custom landscape designs, presentations, and classes, she and her husband have supported hundreds of homeowners, business owners, and municipal and nonprofit staff choose sustainable, bird-and-butterfly-friendly landscapes.  She is a certified Texas Master Naturalist and has achieved Native Plant Society of Texas Landscape Certification Levels 1 and 2. Elizabeth holds two Master’s of Fine Arts in Writing degrees. She has published articles on habitat restoration for Houston Chronicle and is the author of the poetry collection, Given Words.
