Come build a Butterfly Garden with Conservation Volunteers Australia!

Out at Finch Hatton State School, CVA is building a butterfly garden. The native habitat around the school is quite degraded, and our volunteers will be on this project from day one! The first step will be preparing the site by removing the invasive weeds. We will also be building a small nursery to locally propagate desirable plants for butterflies. Next we will be planting the trees, shrubs, and creepers that attract butterflies. Finally we will be visiting the site over the course of several months to check on it and maintain it.

Come and join us to learn about which native plants attract butterflies, which plants are considered weeds, and all the skills you need to build your very own butterfly garden! 

Volunteers need to bring and wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, boots or sturdy shoes, and a broad-brimmed hat. It is also recommended that volunteers bring and use sun-screen (30+) and tropical-strength insect repellent.

Hope to see you there!
