Spring’s just around the corner! The Metropolitan Lawn & Garden Show is Kansas City’s premier consumer Show dedicated to the green industry. This year’s theme is Butterfly Gardening and Monarch Watch has been invited to participate (and given complimentary booth space). We’ll have a large exhibit set up with lots of monarchs, videos, and information about our various programs, concentrating on Monarch Waystations. We’ll also be accepting donations, have t-shirts and other goodies for sale to support our program, and be giving away monarch habitat seeds, including milkweed – we’ll even have a pot-making activity where you can make your own little newspaper pots and plant seeds to take home. grin

Right next to us you’ll find the show’s “Butterfly Encounter” – an exhibit with live butterflies from around the world, one of the largest temporary displays ever built in the Midwest.

If you’re in the area we’d love for you to stop by the American Royal Center and see us sometime Friday through Sunday (Feb 6-8):

Friday 10a to 9p
Saturday 10a to 9p
Sunday 10a to 6p

For directions, ticket information, and other details please visit the Metropolitan Lawn & Garden Show website. See you there!
