Two environmental themed gardening classes will be offered to the public on Saturday at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Niagara County, 4487 Lake Ave.

Master Gardener Maxine Grimmer will present “The Plight of The Monarch Butterfly” at 9 a.m. The presentation will address why monarch butterfly populations are declining and what individuals can do to provide food sources and attract monarchs to their garden.

Master Gardener Karen Cavanaugh will present “Ecological Gardening” at 10 a.m., which will cover environmentally safe gardening practices that will encourage beneficial insects and native pollinators to visit gardens as well as methods to grow healthy plants that are more resistant to pests.

There is a cost of $10 for each class and preregistration is required by calling 433-8839 ext. 226 or email jaf21@cornell.edu. Participants of the classes are welcome to bring a soil sample from their garden to be tested for free. A selection of plants from the Cornell Cooperative Extension greenhouse will also be on sale.
