Then come by the library Wednesday, February 17 at 5:30 to hear Birds, Bees, and Butterflies, a talk presented by a natural gardening specialist from Metro.

Metro's experts are ready to talk tips and share gardening tricks at this talk. This program includes a visual presentation, discussion, hands-on learning and free publications for all participants.

Learn more about the plants you need. You want some that provide nectar and pollen, and others that feed local insects. Native plants that fruit or bloom are especially nice, and tend to attract native butterflies, birds, and bees.

This is the first of new monthly adult programs on different topics!

Cornelius Public Library is located at 1355 N Barlow Street in downtown Cornelius.
