General Meeting Announcement
11/28/2017 7:30 PM
The Native Plant Project will present the program "Caterpillar Gardening With Natives" by Berry Nall. Butterflies of the LRGV generally reproduce on plants native to the LRGV. Butterfly enthusiasts, therefore, share a common cause with native plant enthusiasts in wanting to preserve the Valley’s native flora. It is imperative that we promote the use of caterpillar host plants, in addition to flowers, in butterfly gardens. Berry Nall is a pastor and teacher who is fascinated by butterflies at all stages of their lives. He gardens for caterpillars at his home in Starr County, where he has observed immature forms of about 90 species of butterflies. His butterfly photos and life history studies can be seen on his website, leps.thenalls.net. We all need to work together to identify important host species and to provide good information for the culture of these plants. The meeting is Tuesday, November 28 at 7:30 P.M. at the Valley Nature Center, 301 S. Border, Weslaco. For more information visit our web site at www.nativeplantproject.org
The Board of Directors meeting will precede the General Meeting at 6:30pm.
All are welcome!
