Ohio County Master Gardener, MITCH volunteer and nature photographer Daniel Caron filled the Riverview Gallery this afternoon to discuss simple ways for participants to grow their own butterfly gardens. Caron discussed what plants to consider, local garden stores to visit and how to photograph the beautiful, seasonal and tiny visitors that make Ohio Valley gardens home.
