Texas Master Naturalists Monthly Program

Elizabeth White-Olsen

The Coastal Prairie Chapter of Texas Master Naturalists is hosting their free February Program: “Landscaping to Attract Butterflies” with Elizabeth White-Olsen at the Bud O’shieles Community Center in Rosenberg on February 2nd, 2023 from 7 to 9 pm.

Along with many species of wildlife in our country, populations of Texas Gulf Coast butterflies are increasingly threatened by habitat loss and other factors. In this presentation, we will learn what butterflies need to survive and complete their life cycle, as well as ways we can help them in our own yards.

The public is invited to join us for an inspiring and illuminating journey into the magical lives of one of nature’s most wondrous creatures, the butterfly.
