Tuten Park Announces Butterfly Gardening for beginners talk and short pollinator garden tour
Registration Required. Space limited to 25 participants

Lake Charles — On Thursday, June 29 from 5:30 to 7 p.m., Tuten Park will host a butterfly gardening for beginners talk.  Learn all about what has been done at Tuten Park to attract butterflies to its pollinator garden through a short tour and presentation and how to apply this to your own yard.  Since space is limited, registration is required online (http://bit.ly/TutenEd) or in-person (irvin.louque@cityoflc.us or 491-8770). 

Southwest Louisiana is home to numerous species of butterflies, both large and small.  Some of the most prominent species include monarchs, gulf fritillaries, and various swallowtails. Most species of butterflies can easily be attracted to your yard by planting the appropriate flowers and caterpillar host plants. 

Tuten Park’s core mission is to provide a sanctuary for birds, native flowers, trees, and the people of Lake Charles. A diverse landscape full of native flowers and trees provides excellent habitat for numerous butterflies. This talk will provide information to help anyone quickly and easily provide habitat for butterflies and their offspring.
