NO MORE TISSUE BOXES
Our Girl Scouts are no longer collecting tissue boxes for the Big Bend Wildlife Sanctuary. Under pressure from the State Wildlife Agency, the Sanctuary was forced to close, so they no longer have a need for tissue boxes. Thank you to everyone who collected tissue boxes for the past several years. Your “critter houses” made a big difference to the animals that were rehabilitated at the sanctuary.
BEAUTIFUL BUTTERFLY BATHS
Please stop by the church office this morning to check out three beautiful “butterfly baths” that will be placed in the church’s pollinator garden this week. The baths were created by the Girl Scouts of Troop 9114. They are shallow and have special spots for butterflies to land to reach the water.
MONARCH CATERPILLARS IN THE GARDEN
In other butterfly news, more than twenty Monarch Caterpillars were spotted on the Milkweed in the church’s pollinator garden this week. They have stripped the plants clean, gotten quite fat, and we hope they will enter their cocoons very soon. The Monarch Butterflies that emerge in October are the ones that make the seasonal trek down to Mexico for the winter.
