McCone County Fair August 14-16

We will be at the McCone County Fair August 14th, 15th & 16th hosting an informational pollinator booth.

Information will be on pollinators–bees, butterfiles, birds and bats.  There will be pollinator literature and kids activity pages.  Free give-a-way:  Pollinator seed box and noxious weed posters.  There will be a drawing for two flower seed bomb tool kits.

Pollinator seed box:  May contain annual sunflower, purple prairie clover, plains coreopsis, blue flax, black-eyed Susan, blanket flower, sainfoin, white clover, yellow sweet clover, tansy aster, butterfly weed, showy milkweed*, alfalfa, goldenrod, Rocky Mountain bee plant, Western yarrow, wild lupine, hairy vetch, lemon bee balm and white evening primrose.

* Showy milkweed is native to Montana and in large quantities, may be toxic to cattle.  Please note that there are not sufficient quantities in each sample to cause any harm.   This seed is contained in the pollinator mix because it is the main food source for Monarch butterflies.  Without milkweed, the Monarch caterpillars die.  We are doing our part to protect this beautiful butterfly.

We hope to see you at the Fair!
