ROCK SPRINGS — Butterflies were presented by hostess Leslie Jo Gatti during the Garden Section of the Woman’s Club of Rock Springs at the Nov. 5 meeting at the Rock Springs Library.

The group learned how to attract and nourish butterflies through all of their life stages. Wyoming is home to 72 species of butterflies. Of surprise to most of the group was the fact that Wyoming has a state butterfly, the Sheridan’s Green Hairstreak Butterfly, according to a press release.

The Garden Section purchased a hive of bees from Heifer International this year. They decided to continue fundraising through the end of the year and then decide what to purchase next.

Others attendees at the meeting included Jacki Allison, Charlette Stewart, Edna Larsen and Sue Ann McGuire.

The next meeting will be Dec. 3, when members will decorate Christmas trees at both the White Mountain Library and the Rock Springs Library.

For membership information, contact any member.

The Garden Section is part of the Woman’s Club of Rock Springs, an affiliate of the General Federation of Women’s Clubs of Wyoming.
