Growing up on a farm in Michigan, I have been interested in outdoor activities all my life. Gardening, birding, watching butterflies, and hiking are some of my hobbies. I am available to present programs on native plants, birds, or butterflies and to lead nature hikes.

The next Metropolis Garden Club meeting will be on May 10th at 9:30 a.m. at the Parmley farm. Please bring a camp chair if available. (I do have a few extra.) We will meet outside; in case of rain, we will meet under the carport. The program will be a talk by Mike Baltz on Backyards as Wildlife Habitats. There will also be a plant exchange between members.
The Massac Nature Study Society will meet for a nature walk on Saturday, May 15. More details to come!
