Nolensville pollinator garden to benefit butterflies, biology students

Nolensville butterfly garden

The city of Nolensville, Mill Creek Watershed Association, Nolensville High School, a local nonprofit, and area volunteers have brought to life a new pollinator garden on a small tract of lane with the intention of aiding the migration of monarch butterflies, among other pollinators. The garden sits along an unnamed tributary of Mill Creek alongside Nolensville High School and is open to the public. The garden was designed with plants native to Tennessee and especially milkweed, which is vital to monarchs. In addition to providing a relaxing environment for the public, the garden will serve as a living laboratory for biology students at the high school, who will provide watering and maintenance of the garden.
