Everyone is invited to join us this Saturday (May 10th 2008 8am-3pm) for what very well may be our last Spring Open House and Plant Fund Raiser at our current location on KU’s West Campus.

This year’s event will feature activities for children, with the special assistance of Brenda Mott from the Children’s Museum of Kansas City from 11AM-1PM. We will also have live exotic and local insects, videos of monarchs and bees, a honey bee observation hive, and 4,000 continuously blooming butterfly and hummingbird plants you can select from for your garden – and/or as a gift to mom for Mother’s Day. Naturally, we will have lots of milkweed available 🙂

We will also provide refreshments, lots of show & tell, videos and games for children, tours of our garden and lab space, and, of course, monarch butterflies!

We’d love to see you here so mark your calendars! If you’re unable to make it in person, be sure to watch the Blog for photos and updates throughout the day.

Complete information including photos from a past event, directions, and a map is available online at
