Butterfly Gardening With Native Plants – Thursday Night Nature (Nov. 4)

Thursday, November 4 7:00 pm
Thursday, November 4 8:00 pm


Butterfly gardening is a method used to protect the entire life cycle of butterflies. Whether you garden in sun or shade, there are many native plants that will attract these beautiful pollinators to your space. This talk explores the partnerships between butterflies and native plants while suggesting easy steps to enhance our local ecosystems, as well as your own garden.

Trained as an agronomist and working for nearly two decades for the North American Butterfly Association (NABA), Jane Hurwitz has extensive experience observing and writing about the interface of gardens and insects, with a special interest in butterflies. In 2018, Princeton University Press published her most recent book, Butterfly Gardening: The North American Butterfly Association Guide, a lavishly illustrated volume that presents essential information on how to choose and cultivate plants that will attract a range of butterflies to your garden and help sustain all the stages of their life cycles. Jane is a frequent speaker on butterflies, native plants and gardening. She was executive editor of the NABA periodical Butterfly Gardener from 2011 to 2020.
