Native plant society meeting

Event to highlight butterflies
-A +A

Monarch butterflies are native here in Placer and Nevada counties. Learn how to raise these butterflies with the Redbud Chapter of the California Native Plant Society.

Bonnie Bradt and Kate Brennan, both members of the Nevada County Master Gardener team of “Monarch Wranglers,” will share information about planting and growing native milkweed and other pollinator plants to attract monarch butterflies. In addition, they will be discussing the state of the western monarch population and what individuals can do to help.

The event will be from 7 to 9 p.m. Aug. 29 at the Madelyn Helling Library, 980 Helling Way, Nevada City. For more information, contact nativeplanthelp@redbud-cnps.org.
