The Royal Oak Public Library is very excited about establishing a butterfly-friendly garden on their grounds to provide educational opportunities and enjoyment for the community.
What exactly is a butterfly garden?
A butterfly garden is a haven or sanctuary that includes plants that are inviting to butterflies. A butterfly garden contains plants that meet the butterfly's needs during all four life stages: the egg; caterpillar; chrysalis; and adult. A butterfly garden includes plants necessary for butterflies to lay their eggs (host plants) and plants that will provide nourishment for the butterflies (nectar plants).
The Royal Oak Public Library mural is complete and 250 individuals were on hand for a viewing reception on April 17, 2009 honoring mural artist, Kate Paul of Paul Studios and area students whose art was included in the first Royal Oak Public Schools student art exhibit which concluded.
