Golden Grove Elementary School recently received a grant for their butterfly garden.  There are plants already established and they are trying to learn what else they could plant to attract more butterflies.  They also have to put up signage for the plants and that is why they need a knowledgeable person to help identify them. They would like a Master Gardener volunteer to come out on Tuesday afternoons around 3:00 pm.
