VSP: Grand Opening of Butterfly Garden at Willow Fork Park-all volunteer positions filled

June 22, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Diane Russell is spearheading this event.  All volunteer positions have been filled.   After an opening ceremony, Diane will talk about creating a garden both for a place of beauty as well as a restaurant and nursery for butterflies and pollinators. She will then give a tour of the butterfly garden and discuss the key elements that should be considered in planning a backyard butterfly garden. The program will also include a discussion of the different types of plants in the garden and the roles each plant plays. The Chamber of Commerce is being invited. Our Chapter has never tapped in on Cinco Ranch for membership – this will really open it up for us and Diane already has interested people who want to join the Chapter. Diane is asking for about 3 of us to staff an outreach table and recruit. Diane will bring everything needed. All you have to do is to bring yourself!

The 1-hour program starts at 9 AM at the pavilion at Willow Fork Park. Willow Fork Park is located at the northwest corner of 99/Grand Parkway and Cinco Ranch Blvd., north of Cinco Ranch High School. This is a free family–friendly activity for all ages. Willow Fork Park has a big comfortable shaded rest area beside the butterfly garden, so no one will have to suffer in the summer sun.
