The butterflies will thank you for getting their garden ready at Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary on Saturday, April 26, from 9 a.m. to noon.

The kids will thank you for getting the nature play area ready, and then all the plants will heave a collective sigh of relief when you help pull back all the bittersweet that runs amok.

And, when you’re all through, the staff will thank you with a delicious barbecue lunch after all the work is done. Remember to bring gloves and wear work clothes. And maybe a bib for that barbecue.

For more information, call 508-627-4850.
