Program Description

Event Details

Learn about butterflies and plants with Joel from Des Moines Parks and Recreation Department!  The first part of the program will involve learning about what pollinators need so they can survive and why they are so important to people. Second, participants will decorate and fill a flower pot they design to support pollinators and they will take it home with them that day. The last part of the program will actually be planting native Iowa species of plants in a new butterfly garden. Be prepared to get your hands dirty and do a little work to help out Monarchs and pollinators. Registration is required.
