Second Annual Native San Antonio Festival to Feature Butterfly Talk on Swallowtails and Monarchs

The San Antonio Chapter of the Native Plant Society of Texas is staging the second annual Native San Antonio Festival this Saturday, March 26 from 10 – 2 PM at the Land Heritage Institute.

Activities include tree giveaways, a native plant sale, nature and butterfly walks, hay rides, music, Longhorn steers, arts, crafts and family fun.

I’ll be joining several other speakers in a series of programs that explore our native resources.  Here’s the line-up:

11 AM–Curanderismo: Herbs for Healing, Don Jacinto Madrigal and Dr. Elizabeth Portella

Noon–Mission Reach Plants, Lee Marlowe, San Antonio River Authority

12:30 PM–Monarch and Swallowtail Butterflies and Their Plants, Monika Maeckle, http://www.texasbutterflyranch.com

1 PM–Students Love Natives!, Dave Mathews, Environmental Sciences teacher

1:30 PM–Feral Hog Control, Matt Reidy Texas Parks and Wildlife

The event is free and open to the public.  The Land Heritage Institute is across from the Toyota Plant on the Medina River at 1349 Neal Rd., between Applewhite and Pleasanton Roads.  Hope to see you there.
