Butterfly Gardening in the Rain

Kathy Powers and Linda Robertson, both members of the Wilson County Master Gardener Association, might have been mail carriers in a previous life, but they continue to uphold that old adage about working in the rain, sleet, snow and hail in this life as caretakers of the Butterfly & Native Plant Garden at Cedars of Lebanon State Park. Here are a few photos just before the deluge on Monday morning, 14 August 2017.

From  spring through autumn, Linda and/or Kathy have scheduled workdays at the COLSP Butterfly and Native Plant Garden on the second Monday and fourth Friday of the month beginning about 8:00 AM.  Volunteers are always welcome!

tn_20140517 triathlon-IMG_2521Beginning at 6:00 AM on Saturday morning, 26 August 2017 hundreds of triathletes will converge upon Cedars of Lebanon State Park for a swim, a bike ride and run. Sounds easy enough  doesn’t it? It ain’t. It’s a 200 yard swim, a 9.6 mile bike race, and  a 2 mile foot race made more difficult by the hilly course and the heat of August. But it will be fun for those racing and those watching. If you’re an athlete come join us, if you’re not come watch, and if you are a Friend of Cedars of Lebanon State Park come help us. Sign-up to volunteer here:

The Friends of Cedars of Lebanon State Park thank the amazing Team Magic crew for allowing us to participate.
