BGOSS Welcomes Port Elgin United Church: POD P-5

Port Elgin United Church is the first group in 2018 to become a new “Friends of Butterfly Gardens of Saugeen Shores (BGOSS).” The “Friends of BGOSS” is a program where church groups, schools and homeowners can be part of a community wide effort to promote native gardening to attract Monarchs and other pollinators. Melitta Smole, executive of BGOSS says, “We have two homeowners, Chantry Island and Port Elgin United Church who want to make a difference in our community by planting native plants.”
