Gardening for Butterflies at Kerncliff Park

Jun 21, 2014 | 10:00am | Kerncliff Park

Many butterfly and pollinator species are in decline due to habitat loss and the use of harmful chemicals. The partners in the Cootes to Escarpment EcoPark System are working to restore habitat for these important species and are encouraging homeowners to plant pollinator-friendly species to help create a habitat network throughout the EcoPark System. We are creating a butterfly garden at Kerncliff Park using native plants and seed. Join us for the planting and get tips from experts to select plants and design your garden to attract butterflies.  Native seed packs will be available.

Gloves and shovels will be provided, but more are welcome! Meet at the Kerncliff Park Parking Lot on the west side of Kerns Road, north of Bonfield Ct.
