Cubs love butterflies

By: Laurie Deacon

Thirty Cubs for a night planting: They are getting their World Environment Badge by doing many things and one is learning about and building a Pollinator Link Garden around their Den in Coorparoo. The Cubs all planted each a wattle tree and a she oak tree, leaning how to care for the young tree as well.

They know without Pollinator Link Gardens that their food is in jeopardy. They hope these plants will grow into a big supermarket for the native animals. With the help of the older Scouts each plant is going to get a border decorated with art to ensure no one mows them off!

Thanks to Helen Schwencke of Earthling Enterprises for our brand new butterfly posters.  
