Texas A&M course details how to make and care for butterfly gardens in Texas.

A new course at Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service covers butterfly biology, species, and how to attract them to your garden. The course is two and a half hours long, and details information relating to creating and maintaining butterfly gardens in Texas. AgriLife Extension entomologist, Molly Keck, is the course creator. She made the course in response to questions she has received throughout her career. "The course was born from years of people asking me about butterflies and creating a butterfly garden," said Keck. The plants that butterflies may be attracted in Texas will be detailed, and specific focus will be given to plants that are also water efficient.
