National Park Day will be observed locally at Nathanael Greene/Close Memorial Park with several activities that highlight why green expanses are important to the community. On that day, beginning at 11 a.m. until 6 p.m., the Friends of the Garden-sponsored Dr. Bill Roston Native Butterfly House begins its fifth season of fun and education for adults and children alike. On National Public Gardens Day, admission is free to the 7.5-acre Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden. Hours are 9 a.m. until 7:30 p.m.

Master Gardeners of Greene County will be on hand to answer home gardening questions in the Hotline office located in the Botanical Center. Bring in an insect, diseased leaf or plant for diagnosis. The Hotline, 417-881-8909, ext. 320, is staffed from 9 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., Monday through Saturday.

Visitors can also stroll through the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden with its mixed perennial border, themed herb beds, ornamental grasses, Missouri native plants, turf plots and kitchen garden to get ideas for their own gardens.

The Greene County Extension Center is also open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Visitors can also drop of soil tests from their lawn, garden or field during that time. Visitors can also view two Greene County Extension displays inside the Botanical Center. One entitled, “A Day in the Life of MU Extension” and another that showcases the “One-room Schools of Greene County.”

Session topic:

Come celebrate National Park Day at the Botanical Center and see what this location has in store. While in the building/park learn more about Greene County Extension or get help from local Master Gardeners.
