Mills River Presbyterian Hosts Earth Day Project

Big and little humans are invited to help with an Earth Day project to help winged inhabitants of Western North Carolina. Mills River Presbyterian Church invites children and families to take part in a special Earth Day project at 10 am Saturday April 22, as the congregation creates a butterfly garden and bee hotel on the church property.

“We’ll plant caterpillar and butterfly friendly plants, make plant markers and put together a butterfly bath outdoors,” says Rachel Malmgren, youth and families ministry leader at Mills River Presbyterian Church. “Our other fun activity will be to make a bee hotel and learn about the importance that pollinators play in the environment. This will be both an entertaining and educational time for everyone!”

Kids of all ages and their parents are invited to this free outdoor activity celebrating the 47th anniversary of Earth Day. The church is located at 10 Presbyterian Church Road in Mills River, just off of Highway 280.
