At 9 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, volunteers will gather to expand the butterfly garden at the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas Environmental Preserve on Flying Cow Road in Wellington. It will be a combined effort between the Palm Beach Central High School Environmental Club, the Wellington Garden Club and the Village of Wellington. The majority of funding will be through a $500 donation from the Wellington Preservation Coalition.
Approximately 100 native plants purchased from Native Choice Nursery will be installed in an area just east of the existing butterfly garden. Brian Hopper and Scott Fletcher of the village, PBCHS teacher Toni Riebe, Tom Wenham of the Wellington Preservation Coalition and Lisa Ferrano of the Wellington Garden Club are coordinating this project.
For more information, call Ferrano at (561) 628-3675.
