Local nature enthusiasts, Lois Lewis and Leslie Natoli will be presenting about local species of birds and butterflies, and sharing tips that all of us can do to encourage these declining populations to thrive. Their presentation will include identification of the most common species of birds and butterflies of the Lowcountry, and suggestions for planting habitats that are sustainable, fun, and easy to grow.
