A wonderful event at the Lacombe branch Southeast LA Nat'l Wildlife Refuge last Saturday! A variety of interesting nature displays and presentations, crafts for kids of all ages and a walking tour of the gardens! "BugLady's Butterfly Summer" is now available in the visitor center gift shop!
On January 25, 2020 the Baton Rouge Master Gardeners from Hilltop Arboretum hosted a fantastic Gardening Symposium event packed with very informative nature presentations plus book and plant sales to help further education! Doug Tallamy, nationally known speaker and author of Nature's Best Hope, was promoting the use of native plants to support wildlife whereas Bill Fontenot, author of Native Gardening in the South was more focused on planting for birds. I felt very honored to be sharing the stage with these two very knowledgeable friends of mine as I was presenting, "Plant It and They Will Come!" --how to attract butterflies to your garden using specific native plants. Thank you, Hilltop folks for selling forty copies of my new book, "BugLady's Butterfly Summer"! What a wonderful day!
