Hummingbird, Bee & Butterfly Day – Featuring a Free Butterfly Release
Nature lovers of all ages will have a wonderful time at Santa Fe Greenhouses’ Hummingbird, Bee & Butterfly Day.

“Pollinators are the key to a healthy ecosystem and developing plants full of nectar is my life’s work” says David Salman, President and Chief Horticulturist for Santa Fe Greenhouses, Inc.” in addition “I want to invite the community to learn about growing pollinator plants and enjoy our fun butterfly release.”
