The Plains Georgia Welcome Center located 1 mile from downtown Plains is preparing to add a roadside garden. Old shrubs and plants have been removed and plans are underway to establish nectar and host plants to attract butterflies. A special emphasis will be placed on native milkweed being included to provide nectar as well as serving as a host plant for the full life cycle of the monarch.

We hope you will make plans to visit the Rosalynn Carter Butterfly Trail this spring. For more information about the trail go to
