Public invited to plant a tree at National Butterfly Center

NABA LogoThe public is invited to come out and plant a tree today at the National Butterfly Center in honor of Arbor Day. Between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m. the National Butterfly Center is planting 100 trees to commemorate the day and to celebrate the groundbreaking of the next phase of their development, according to Marianna Treviño-Wright, executive director.

Treviño-Wright encourages the public to bring their shovels and encourage friends, co-workers and family to join the effort and then enjoy a free brisket picnic under the palapa. Regular entrance fees will apply for the event.

April 25 marks the 142nd anniversary of the national holiday to promote environmental conservation and community beautification – two goals shared by the NBC.   The native trees being used will form an extension to the existing Hackberry Trail and provide additional breeding and feeding areas for butterflies, birds and wildlife of South Texas.

For details or directions, visit www.nationalbutterflycenter.org, or call 583-5400.
