Anne Outdoors
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 plant exchange between members.


The Massac Nature Study Society will meet for a nature walk on Saturday, May 15.  More details to come!
