Don't Miss the Fun! Spring Insect & Horticulture EXPO and Plant Sale!

Texas A&M AgriLife Spring EXPO

We had so much fun in the fall, we had to do it again!  Come out and join us for our Spring EXPO and Plant Sale.  We'll have experiments and activities for the kids, an ask the Master Gardener booth for questions about your garden, and a plant sale to fill your veggie garden and add some color to the landscape.

We will also have partners from UTSA and the Mayor's Monarch initiative as well as Nature's Exquisite Creatures.  Learn about the importance of monarchs, purchase some plants to help feed the butterflies, and learn how the milkweed is essential to their lifecycle.

You'll also get the chance to get up close and personal with spiders, roaches, tarantulas, and even snakes from Nature's Exquisite Creatures!

Kids will play pheromone games, build butterfly crafts, play with painting worms, dig through dirt to hold creepy crawler, pot your own plants to fill the garden, color your own carnations, and so much more!
