planted bog garden
Last week, with donated plants from the NC Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill, the Boiling Spring Lakes Garden Club planted the bog garden with native wetland plants. If you missed the post on building the bog garden you can see it here.

If you are in the Boiling Spring Lakes area stop by the Community Center to see the bog garden!
*Don’t forget about our Sci Fund Challenge project to protect Venus flytrap habitat in the Green Swamp Preserve. We only have 26 day left to reach our goal, donate today on our project page!!
Thanks for looking! Happy Thanksgiving!
