The Panhandle Butterfly House (PBH) will open for their 2009 season on April 17th. Public hours will be Thursdays-Saturdays (10AM-3PM), and Sundays (noon-4PM). While entrance is "free" - donations are needed (a buck or two per person? - e.g., "Butterflys are NOT free")). The PBH is entirely supported by volunteers and donations - no government money.
Also, there is a need for volunteers - one time - or ongoing.
For people to volunteer as docents you need to attend one 2-1/2 hour training session and then you volunteer during the summer. Training sessions are March 31 -OR- April 20 -OR- May 18.
Also more hands for gardens workdates would be of help. This week there are workdays Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, (March 23, 24, 25) starting at 8:30a.m. (There will be someone there around 8:00a.m. if anyone wishes to arrive earlier.)
If can help, show up dressed for garden work and check in with "Jeanne B." There is plenty to do, includng spreading mulch and weeding pots in the shadehouse. Please come when you can and leave when you must!
