Spring planting continues with a focus on flowers. The explosion of butterflies and blooms is inspiring folks!
TPF’s City of Butterflies / Ciudad de Mariposas initiative empowers children to become eco-activists who make their communities safer, more life sustaining, and more playful! Youth will learn about the essential relationship between native plants and the butterflies they support and become part of a collaborative effort – to increase the presence of butterflies and the plants they thrive on – in neighborhoods across Los Angeles County.
