Rita Venable’s presentation “A Home for Butterflies” attracted butterfly and gardening enthusiasts of all ages. Now we will all be on the lookout for the elusive Zebra Swallowtail! -Crystal Deane, librarian, Nashville Public Library
The pictures were as fabulous as her presentation, knowledge, and enthusiasm.
-J. Adair, Gardening Partners of Dickson
I heard many positive comments from both beginners and experienced butterfly enthusiasts. Rita shared from personal experiences which made for a relaxed but very informative talk. It is clear she has a passion for the subject and enjoyed sharing her expertise to help others.
-J. Herrera, Bowie Nature Park
The presentation Rita gave was exactly what we needed and wanted to hear. I have heard nothing but praise for the presentation. I love the book and I will await the return of my butterflies so I can key them.
