Blackstone Parks Conservancy
For Earth Day at RiverWood, we’ve planned an ambitious and fun event to help increase the numbers of the amazing Monarch butterfly. Monarchs cannot survive as a species without milkweed plants, so we will make paper pots, plant milkweed seeds in them, and build planters of natural materials for our milkweed plants to grow in. There will be extra pots for kids to take home to start their own milkweed garden. All materials will be provided.

Part of our new free Nature Programs for Children in K – 5.

Sunday, April 22nd, 1:30-3pm, at Blackstone Field (, across from the Narragansett Boat Club (2 River Road, Providence, RI 02906). Please register at
