The Bob Jones Nature Center Organization is offering a complimentary biscuit breakfast and program for those 55 and older at the Bob Jones Nature Center & Preserve, Friday, September 10, 2010 from 9:30 am to 11:00 am.
The program, Bugs & Biscuits, will provide a glimpse into the fascinating world of insects. They can be creepy and crawly, but they can also be beautiful and alluring. They also outweigh and outnumber us. While insects are often scary and annoying, they are a much needed part of the environment.
Master Gardener Eleanor Tuck will share her fascination with and humor about these small, but influential, jewels of the animal world. Ms. Tuck has always loved gardening; learning to enjoy the beginning of a lifelong interest at her grandfather’s side. After retiring from a social work career, she took horticulture classes and joined the Master Gardener program, earning the entomology specialization certification. She is now on the Master Gardener speaker’s circuit.
There is no fee for the breakfast (guaranteed to be bug free) and program. RSVPs are requested Funding for the breakfast is provided through a grant from the Southlake Newcomers Club. For more information and to RSVP, call 817.939.1110 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
