Butterflies are some of the most beautiful and interesting creatures on Earth and they make the world a little more colorful. However, butterflies do more than just paint a pretty picture, they are highly beneficial insects in our yards! Many natural butterfly habitats have been lost to human activities (like building homes, roads and farms), but we can help them by planting the right kinds of plants and flowers that they love to feed and lay eggs on. Join this workshop to learn why butterflies are beneficial and how to attract them to your yard. After touring the Linnaeus Butterfly Gardens we will be guided in painting beautiful garden rocks to take home. This workshop is geared towards 12-18-year-olds and the cost is free for Tulsa Garden Center Members and $5 for non-members. Snacks will be provided.
