We're celebrating Earth Day this Saturday at our shop and Monarch Waystation! This Saturday we will be hosting a Make and Take, where we will use our Cottage Nest Chalky Finish Paint to make chalkboard style flower pots and plant a pollinator friendly plant. All free of charge just for joining us!
Also, *fingers crossed* we hope to release one of the Giant Swallowtail butterflies we've been raising. We have one very close to emerging but it's on butterfly time, not our time. Either way, we will have caterpillars and chrysalises on display for any curious guests. And here's a little background on this season's first generation of butterflies we are raising.
And if you can not join us but want to make a difference, I recommend you look up local March for Science events, read this great article from Jane Goodall and by all means please watch this documentary on Seed Saving and Extinction featured on PBS.org until the end of the month.
