Want to learn how to attract butterflies to your garden? Come learn how at the Washington Area Butterfly Club meeting at Long Branch Nature Center in Arlington.

Naturalist Lisa Bierer-Garrett, one of the original members of WABC, will speak on butterfly and wildlife gardening for your backyard. Lisa, a Calvert County, MD resident and longtime butterfly-garden caretaker for several county parks, will discuss how to look at your space and plan a great garden that is attractive to pollinators, birds and other critters. She tends towards using native plants and developing native habitats that are attractive to monarchs. Lisa has also been tagging monarchs for more than a decade with Monarch Watch. Join Lisa to discuss what you most want to attract to your backyard and she will try to work out a great garden plan!

Prior to being the Wildlife Images Bookstore manager at Patuxent Wildlife Research Refuge in Laurel, MD, Lisa was owner of the Bowie Wild Bird Center (closed) and a naturalist for Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission (M-NCPPC)/Prince George’s County Parks.
