Chatham County Master Gardener to Speak about Butterflies and Butterfly Gardens at Savannah Mall

Turner will present information on native plants and host plants for butterflies and caterpillars. He will also provide UGA Cooperative Extension publications and will bring plants to display and discuss with visitors in the Center Court area.

 
PRLog - Jul. 9, 2014 - SAVANNAH, Ga. -- (SAVANNAH, GA) Howard Turner, a Chatham County Master Gardener and Master Naturalist from The University of Georgia Cooperative Extension – Chatham County service, will be at the Savannah Mall Saturday, July 12 to discuss butterflies and butterfly gardens. The Savannah Mall will also host a butterfly release that day at noon.

Turner will present information on native plants and host plants for butterflies and caterpillars. He will also provide UGA Cooperative Extension publications and will bring plants to display and discuss with visitors in the Center Court area. He will present the talk between noon and 2:00 p.m. following the butterfly release.

“People generally know that butterflies get nectar from every flower they see, but the plant that butterflies lay their eggs are vital to their survival. If caterpillars don’t have a host plant, they will not be able to eat,” said Turner.

Turner has owned and operated a nursery, Ann and Howard’s Plants, for nine years with his wife. His grand children, 8-year-old Micah and 10-year-old Skylynn, will be with him during the presentation to help teach other children.

The Savannah Mall Butterfly Exhibit was opened Friday, July 4 and will run until July 27. The exhibit features over 200 live butterflies from a variety of species tucked away inside a beautiful conservatory, decorated and complete with plants conducive to butterfly flight. The program also features educational displays, butterfly crafts and life-cycle kiosks. Admission is $3 per person. With one paid adult admission, one child under 8 years old will receive free admission.
