KATY/CINCO RANCH (Covering Katy News) – Willowfork park is opening a butterfly garden and will hold a grand opening event on June 22 from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Willow Fork Park can be seen from Highway 99, the Lanier Parkway, behind Cinco Ranch High.
After the opening ceremony, Diane Russell (Coastal Prairie Chapter, Texas Master Naturalist), will talk about creating a garden both as a place of beauty as well as a restaurant and nursery for butterflies and pollinators.
The public will then tour the butterfly garden and discuss the key elements that you should consider in planning a backyard butterfly garden. The program will also include a discussion of the different types of plants in the garden and the roles each plant plays.
The one-hour program begins at the Willow Fork Park pavilion. Willow Fork Park is located at the northwest corner of 99/the Lanier Parkway and Cinco Ranch Blvd., north of Cinco Ranch High School. This is a free family-friendly activity for all ages.
