Learn how to make your yard attractive to butterflies and birds. Learn how to have butterflies return to your yard year after year. Learn about sun and soil requirements and receive a plant list for
wildlife friendly plants. Examples of various successful butterfly and bird gardens will be shown. Tennessee Aquarium lead horticulturalist Christine Bock Hunt will also lead a walk of the grounds to identify various bird-friendly shrubs and flowers already planted around the Arboretum.

Seeds and seedlings will be given out.
