Monarchs, Painted Ladies, Swallowtails and other beautiful butterflies call southeast Kansas home.
If you are interested in attracting these to your yard and incorporating a more naturalistic approach in your landscape, plan to attend the “Protecting the Pollinators” program on March 30th at 6:30 pm in the Round Room at the Fort Scott Community College.
June Stipp, Extension Master Gardener, will provide information on planting butterfly nectar and host plants, as well as how to incorporate a water source and warming area into the landscape.
Krista Harding, District Extension Agent, will discuss the proper use of insecticides.
This program is co-sponsored by the Bourbon County Garden Club and the Southwind Extension District.
It is free and open to the public. Please RSVP to the Southwind Extension District – Fort Scott office by calling 620-223-3720.
