April 15, 2017, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM @ Branson Recycling Center
The City of Branson invites the public to join Mayor Karen Best at the Monarch Butterfly Garden Dedication on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at 11:00AM at the Branson Recycle Center, 601 Compton Drive across from the Branson Community Center.
A free butterfly milkweed plant will be available to those citizens who attend the ceremony, provided as a courtesy by the Missouri Department of Conservation.
Monarch butterfly populations have declined by 90% in the past two decades, and what used to be an annual migration of billions of butterflies through Branson dwindled to almost nothing in 2016. We are grateful for more than 500 milkweed plants that have been provided by the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) for the Branson region. A drawing will be held for butterfly-themed prizes including a "Monarch Butterfly Garden in a Box"!
