Planting and Maintenance of the Butterfly Garden

About this committee:


The Butterfly Garden is an on-going project that provides visual enjoyment for numerous visitors to a large park and recreation area at Covered Bridge Park and Wehr's Dam. The Club donates the plants and the township provides mulch for the garden. Planting, trimming and general maintenance are done monthly by the team throughout the growing season.
